Sunday Afternoon Recycled Wrap   with Rita 

With time on my hands, and a need to embark on a creative journey…

the “Sunday Afternoon” recycled silk wrap was born.
Learn how to use the following ‘recipe’ to craft a unique, colorful piece of your own…

Start with one ball of recycled silk; add one skein of fingering yarn in a contrasting color.
Randomly, alternate knitting rows with strands of each color, or both together.
Wrap and carry the unused strand along the edge so it is ready to be picked up again.
Switch back and forth…changing stitch patterns.
Have fun watching the colors of the recycled silk unfold, as unexpected flashes of color appear.
In a short time, you too will have…a wonderful “Sunday Afternoon”!

In this class you will learn:
–  How to alternate yarns
–  How to carry alternating strands along the edge (no tails!)

What You Need to Know:
–  Long Tail Cast On and How to Bind Off
–  How to Knit and Purl

Saturday, August 16, 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Class Fee: $ 25.00 + Yarn purchased from Twist
