Stranded Knitting - Make a Hat or Cowl (in person)

You can knit and purl, you can cast-on and off, and you can knit in the round. Now you can impress yourself and others by adding color-work to your skill set. Learn basic stranded knitting in the round with this stylish hat.  Don't wear hats?  Don't worry, you can make a cowl instead!

PLEASE NOTE- There is homework before first class so the entire class can be spent learning the techniques!   Also, you will learn to carry yarn in BOTH hands in this class.  Prepare to expand your knitting skills!
