FIBER FRIDAY Grand Canyon Hat with Nancy Bates VIA ZOOM!

A great hat class for newish knitters, but still fun for everyone.  Learn how easy it is to knit in the round while reading a chart and switch colors with this colorful but easy design.  You'll even learn a simple technique for jog-less stripes.  And, we'll touch on gauge, blocking, and decreasing along the way.

Instructor: Nancy Bates
Instructor Bio: Growing up in a family of 11 in the suburbs of Southern California, Nancy's love of nature and all things fiber arts started at a very young age. Each day could find her climbing trees and exploring the local hills one moment to hand sewing Barbie clothes and making hats the next. Over the years, embroidery, crocheting, costume making, knitting, painting, cross stitching, and weaving were added to the list of beloved hobbies. In college, Nancy sat under the trees between classes knitting sweaters. The love of the outdoors grew as national and state parks became family destinations with her husband and 3 daughters. The idea for Knitting the National Parks began 5 years ago as she was looking at a Joshua Tree and decided "I could knit that into a hat." And she did!
