May 7th & May 21st, 1-3pm // Warmer weather is coming (we promise!) and linen is the perfect fiber to knit and wear in the warmer months. Choose a linen top pattern from either the Linen Noir or Linen Verdant collections and let Stash Enhancer Kathy guide you on your way to a beautiful summer top. During this workshop you’ll learn how to select patterns for linen yarns, how to choose sizes based on your measurements, and why swatching is so important for knitting with plant fibers. Get started on your linen top and get advice on fit, shaping, weaving in ends, and washing your linen garments from a seasoned garment knitter. Students should be confident with the basics of knitting (cast-on, knit, purl, increases, decreases, working in the round, and binding-off). See a Stash Enhancer for a materials list & homework.
