Addictive Argyle! Hat Project
Thursday, October 15, 2020
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM (EDT)

Love those classic diamond shapes called Argyle, but are mystified about how to accomplish them? In this workshop, you will learn the classic technique of knitting Argyle flat, with key tips and tricks, including how to wrap the yarn and a seaming method that makes the seam nearly invisible and not bulky. Each stage of the construction of an argyle hat designed by instructor will be covered. And a bonus: how to calculate your own Argyle diamond patterns for different gauges.

Advanced Beginner to Intermediate - Participants should be able to accomplish long tail cast on, basic sts (K, P, SSK, K2 tog).Having worked with a chart will be helpful, but a quick overview of that skill will be covered in class as well.
Homework Required?
This is ribbing for your hat. On straight needles, size 5, using MC from supply list below, CO 107. Work in K1 P1 rib for 1.5", ending with completed RS row. (When working the ribbing: On RS, you begin and end with K1. On WS, you begin and end with P1.)
Also, make two stockinette swatches with any worsted wt wool yarn: CO 16 sts and work 20 rows. Bind off and block. You will use these swatches to practice the seaming technique.
