Tidal Cove Scarf

  • Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply 170 Park Street Bangor, ME, 04401 United States (map)

Class Description: “Tidal Cove Scarf” by Knitwise Design is a unique piece that is a lot of fun to knit! When you wear this scarf be prepared for other knitters to examine it and exclaim, “How did you do that?” In this class the designer will show you exactly how! The pattern calls for dk weight yarn, but she will show you how to modify the basic pattern for any weight and type of yarn you like. (This design plays very well with hand-dyed and variegated yarns.) After choosing yarn and making pattern adjustments, you will be guided through the process of forming and connecting the folds that give this scarf it’s three dimensional form. You’ll go home with your project underway and the skills needed to complete a scarf that is sure to impress!

 

Date and Time: Saturday Nov 18, 10am - 12 noon.

 

Skills Needed: Must be comfortable casting-on and knitting - no purling required. Great project for advanced beginners who want to learn an unusual technique!

Materials Needed: One copy of the pattern “Tidal Cove Scarf” by Knitwise Design. Available for purchase through the store or through Ravelry or Etsy.

Yarn: You will be able to shop for yarn at the beginning of the class, or bring a favorite yarn (any weight from fingering to worsted) with you. Amount will depend on the weight of yarn you choose and the length you make your scarf. 270 - 350 yards will do an average scarf for most yarns.

Needles: You will need a 16 inch circular AND a pair of straight needles in same size (2 double points will work also.) Size will depend on yarn chosen and how firmly you knit. Bring a selection of sizes with you or you can purchase at the class.
