Knitting Colorwork - The Boston Flip
We just love Thea Coleman aka Baby Cocktails and her latest pattern was one we felt adventurous beginner knitters that wanted to try colorwork would enjoy. The Boston Flip was designed as a gift for Thea's daughter, Maya, and her best friend, Olivia. The two of them will head off to college this fall. Thea tossed in "all kinds of hopes and wishes, and thoughts into each stitch". The pattern is rooted in tradition and features layers. The pattern is designed for worsted or bulky weight yarn. Two skeins (approx 130 yds per skein) will wield two hats that are the reverse of each other.
Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
