Market Bag

November 3, 2018 9am - 12pm

In this 3-hour class, you will learn a whole bunch of techniques that you can use to knit the Ilene Market Bag, with the added bonus that you will use these skills in all sorts of projects. You will learn the following: picking up stitches, knitting a yo/k2tog lace in the round, and the 3-needle bind-off. We will also talk about working with linen as you work on this fun (and useful) project. You won’t be able to stop at just 1 bag (especially when you see all the fabulous colors!). We will be practicing on swatches with scrap yarn during the class. Homework required.
