Double Knitted Cowl with Guest Instructor Suzanne Nielsen

May 26, 2018 10am - 1pm

Join local designer Suzanne Nielsen as she us teaches the art of double knitting with her beautiful "Charted Territory" cowl in this amazing one day class! The pattern will be provided.

Suzanne wrote: "The inspiration for this design came from my cherished Navajo Rug. Even before I became involved in the fiber world I was fascinated by Navajo weavers. They create intricate, unique designs that are never written down before they appear in their rugs. But don’t worry, for this cowl I will take you into 'charted territory'.

Like many Navajo designs, this piece has four-way symmetry. The top half mirrors the bottom half and the second half of the cowl mirrors the first. Double knitting with a special cast-on and bind-off make this cowl reversible and refined."
