Astra Hat - meets twice
Perfect for fast gift knitting, the Astra hat comes in four sizes and the matching cowl is easily adjusted for a custom fit. Choose contrasting colors, create a gradient or bold variation with speckles or solids, or have some fun and use up your favorite DK leftovers for the slip-stitch two-color section.
Learn twisted ribbing, become more comfortable slipping stitches, and get the hang of decreased rounds to complete this hat. You can use some of these techniques to create a matching cowl as well!
Limited to 5 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
