Tips & Techniques
An excellent, project-based introduction to Marlisle. In this class, you will start a Hozkwoz Hat, a pattern from Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting, to the extent that you can continue in confidence. It is an excellent introduction to understanding the technique of Marlisle. The hat is worked in quarters from the top down, in the round, starting with a pinhole cast-on, a circular cast-on method essential to add to your cast-on arsenal if you don’t already have one. It’s useful for toe-up socks, shawls that start in the center, and Pinglewins, too. This hat is an easy knit, with enough quirks to keep it interesting and pick up plenty of transferable skills.
- understanding the construction of the Hoskwoz Hat
- pinhole cast-on
- working a hat from the top down
- basic Marlisle using two colors of yarn (with one as a feature color)
- understanding the function and application of decorative seams
- garter stitch in the round
- a new increase that works wonders when using two yarns together
Technique Requirements: Experience of stranded colorwork a plus, but not essential. You must be confident working small circumferences in the round in the manner of your choosing (for example using DPNs or the magic-loop method).
