Class Details:
Share Ambah’s love for rummaging through her stash and creating designs that feature all those beloved leftovers and mini-skeins. She’ll bring her favorite examples along to share with you and inspire. Bring all of your yarn leftovers, end-balls, mini-skeins and have fun creating a color sequence for a fun project with guidance from Ambah. Be prepared to swap with each other and mix and match to maximize your color scheme. Then get knitting on a fun cowl project. There’ll be several cowl options to choose between to suit your style and color arrangement. Handout includes a code to download one of Ambah’s patterns to try out after your cowl.
