Roller Coaster Cowl by Barbara Benson (Taught by Barbara Benson)

Session:  Thursday, May 1 6 - 8 pm & Saturday, May 24    1 - 3 pm 
Cost:  $25, includes pattern
Materials: 400 yards of a fingering weight yarn, US5 needle
Description:  Worn as either a long loop or doubled up for warmth, this pattern was specifically developed to work well with highly variegated yarns. The boldness of this design holds up to wild colors and shows them off with changes in direction and texture (not that it wouldn’t look great in a solid, because it would).

Although this cowl looks complicated it is actually a fast and easy knit. Utilizing a couple of extra fancy (but easy!) techniques you get a lot of “bang for your buck”. The cowl is like a roller coaster both in visual appearance and in how fun it is to knit. You coast along with row after row of simple stitches, and then BLAMMO! it gets very exciting for a row. Then you return to your coasting. And when it’s done, you won’t want to wait to take another ride.

Suncrest Shawl by Tanis Lavallee

Session:  Saturday, May 17 & 31      1 - 3 pm
Cost:  $25, includes pattern
Materials: 420 yds of a fingering weight yarn, US 6 needle

Hannah Cowl by Kyle Kunnecke
Session:  Monday June 2 & 9           6 - 8 pm
Cost:  $25, includes pattern
Materials:            US 7 circular needle, 375 yards worsted weight yarn
Description:  Want to try your hand at fair isle? This is the project for you. Worked in the round, this cowl features a geometric pattern that comes alive with Cascade Casablanca. Choose two similar colors for a subtle cowl, or go for the dramatic by picking two contrasting colors. Whatever you decide, the result will be a fun, warm cowl full of graphic interest that’ll be well loved when winter arrives.

Enrtelac Shawl by Eva Martinsson
Session:  Saturday, June 14, 21 & 28   1 -3 pm
Cost:      $35, includes pattern
Materials:   US 7 circular needle, 375 yards worsted weight yarn
