Design Your Own Slip Stitch Cowl with Michele Bernstein

Slipped Stitches

Slipped stitches are wonderful way to get the look of colorwork, without needing to carry two strands of yarn. It adds delightful squoosh, too. If you’ve never encountered slip stitch patterns, or have and thought it sounded complicated, we have the perfect class for you! Michele Bernstein is teaching a Design Your Own Slip Stitch Cowl workshop Saturday, September 19, from 10:30am-3:30pm, with a hour break for a BYOB lunch.

This workshop starts off in the morning with an in-depth look at the technique. Student’s will play with color and texture, and get their imaginations going. Then a take a breather, enjoy one of the lovely restaurants in our neighborhood, and get ready for the afternoon session, when students will design their very own cowl. There’s something wonderful about having a piece you’ve designed yourself. In this mass-produced world, it’s a little spark of creativity, and it belongs just to you.
