Stash Buster: NORTHEASTERLY

March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$25

Here is an ingenious modular design for a blanket, scarf, or wrap that either can be carefully planned ahead or made up as you go along from your leftover fingering or DK weight yarns (or even that beautiful mini skein set you haven’t figured out what to do with yet). There’s no seaming, you weave ends in as you knit, you can pick it up and put it down and never lose your place, and it will gobble up your stash – what could be better?

Prerequisites: Know how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and bind off.

Materials: Copy of Melissa Alexander-Loomis’ Northeasterly (available at GYI), yarn, needles, and notions as per pattern.

GYI CLASS POLICIES

  • With the exception of Knitting 101, basic knitting skills are required to attend our classes. You must know how to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off. If you’d like help mastering the fundamentals before taking a class, please take our Knitting 101 instruction.
  • Payment is due at registration. Fees are non-refundable unless class is cancelled by Gosh Yarn It! Class withdrawals will be accepted with 2 weeks advance notice and store credit will be issued for class fee. If less than 2 weeks notice is given, store credit will be given only if we can fill your space in the class with another student.
  • Gosh Yarn It! reserves the right to cancel or reschedule classes that do not meet the required minimum enrollment of 3 students; class fees can be be refunded or held as store credit to be used for enrollment in future classes or private instruction. Any class cancelled due to inclement weather will be re-scheduled.
  • Supplies for Knitting 101 are included in the class fee. Unless otherwise noted, however, materials are not included in fees.
  • We really do appreciate your business and give participants a 10% discount on all in-stock supplies required for classes. To avoid disappointment with your finished product, we ask that you purchase all your class materials at GYI.
  • Bring basic notions with you to class, including scissors, round and locking stitch markers, a small crochet hook (“fixer”), and a darning needle.
  • Please purchase supplies and wind yarn prior to class. If this is not possible, please arrive in plenty of time before session begins to do so. A yarn winder and swift are available for student use.
