The pattern is $7.00 on Ravelry. The shawl requires 2 skeins of solid, semi-solid or lightly tonal fingering weight yarn. Bring your own size 6 beads (3mm opening) and we’ll help you bead with confidence. Call 972-567-7656 to reserve a space. Class fee of $35 which includes tools for two different methods of adding beads to any project. Note: Please cast on and knit the Set Up Row and Row 2 (knit row) before class start time.

Saturday November 23 We will be hosting a worsted weight colorwork stocking class starting November 23rd and every Saturday morning until Christmas. Choose your pattern and yarns, cast on cuff down, and come any Saturday morning from 10 am to noon for any help you may need. We strongly recommend you choose a pattern that only has 2 colors per row and short ‘floats’. Help with either afterthought heel or Fleegle heel also available. $10 per session for those needing help, free for those who just want to come work with our inclusive community of crafters. All are welcome. Here is a link to a Ravelry search I created to help you find inspiration for a colorwork stocking pattern; some are free, some are paid patterns.
