Spellbound Cowl Class
Class Description: Spellbound Cowl – this project will introduce the knitter to mosaic knitting techniques which make complex appearing designs easy to work using only one color at a time. It has been worked as a tube in the round. This means that there are no seams to finish or long stranded floats that might easily snag when worn. Students will learn a 2-color textured Kitchener stitch at the end to keep the pattern travelling endlessly around the cowl.
Skill: Intermediate – Student can knit and purl, design requires some concentration
