The Hidden World of Braids with Ann Weaver (OCT 13)
OCT. 13 (FRI., 9 AM–4 PM)
Braids. Oh so many braids! The combinations may be endless, but Ann will skillfully show you how to take the guesswork out of Latvian braids and the multiple variations. You’ll be energized, inspired, and dare we say emboldened, as you practice new techniques for braids with long floats, clumps of braids, multiple-color braids, dense layers of braids, and a twisted two-color cast-on during this braid-o-rama extravaganza. After this adventurously ambitious one-day class, you’ll be full of spectacular project ideas and braid strategies you can embed into your next knitting project.
(Please come to class with two colors of yarn wound and ready to knit, or arrive to class 15 to 30 minutes early to choose yarns and have them wound. As always, Ann will be available for color consultations.)
Skill Level: Advanced beginner. Students should know how to knit, purl, and knit in the round on a circular needle, as well as basic stranded knitting. Please see below for the complete list of supplies needed.
US Size 6 24-inch circular needle
One stitch marker
Worsted-weight yarn in five colors, approximately 100 yards of each. You can mix and match different worsted-weight yarns if you like!
