This class will take you through all the techniques you need to make Faye Kennington’s Strawberry Rhubarb slippers, including that unique berry bobble stitch. If you’re a visual learner this is a great chance to walk through the innovative bobble stitch step by step. Also learn about short row techniques and grafting. This great project is perfect for that pretty skein of sock yarn you have stashed. You will receive a copy of the pattern, have your first slipper started (maybe even done) in class, and walk away with the confidence and enthusiasm to finish the pair.
