Knitting Bootcamp - Skiff Hat

Add some cables to your fiber diet and join guest teacher Laura McDougal as we work through the Skiff Hat from Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed.

You'll learn how to do a tubular cast on for extra stretchy hat brims, tips for following a chart with ease, and different cabling techniques including simple twist cables and intricate diamond knots filled with double seed stitch. Make a fitted or slouchy version - choose your own adventure! You'll have Pinterest-ready cabled hat goodness in just three weeks.

Please Bring Your Own:

  • Size 4 DPNs/ 16 inch circular for the brim
  • Size 7 16 inch circular and DPNs for the crown.
  • Optional: cable needle

Supplies: You'll get 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter with the cost of the class, and you have your choice of colors. If you'd like to upgrade your skein you can do that for an additional charge. You can purchase any needles you need at the time of the class.

Tuesdays April 18, 25 and May 2, 6:30-8:30pm
