Black & White / Blue & Gray in Tunisian Crochet
Saturday, February 25
Instructor: Katherine Durack
$45 WGGC members / $70 non-members
Materials fee: $20
Prerequisite: Beginner in Tunisian crochet, with very basic crochet skills: chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet. Free tutorials for these stitches and more are available online at http://www.patterns4successcrochet.com/videos2
These fun and quick-to-make cowls use identical stitch mechanics yet produce two very different looks. Using a double-ended Tunisian hook, students will learn:
- double-ended Tunisian color work (worked flat) that produces a reversible fabric with different colors predominant on opposite sides.
- double-ended Tunisian color work (worked in the round) that produces a single-sided fabric with a 2-color honeycomb effect.
Students may wish to bring:
- locking or open ring stitch markers
- contrasting colors of yarn in the same weight. Depending on your natural gauge, sock, sport and fingering or even a lightweight, drapey worsted yarn may be suitable, so bring several weights, Partial skeins are ideal for the small samples we will make in class.
Part of Katherine’s Suffrage In Stitches series, the color work in these cowls represents the rift that splintered the women’s rights movement after the Civil War because of arguments over rights and race.
Your fee will be refunded if the class is canceled or changed to a different date. Three registrations are required for a class to be held. Students will be notified before the start date if a class is canceled due to an insufficient number of students.
