Mobius Cowl


A great one ball (50 grams) project.  Choose a luxurious thicker bulky weight yarn (size 5) and grab a 40 inch circular needle in a size 9, 10 or 11 depending on the yarn.    This is 1 two hour session.  You will  knit a true mobius strip, casting on in the center with a unnique mobius cast on and knitting both directions at the same time. No purling required.  Must know how to knit and bind off.   Silk Road has a variety of yarns to choose from for this project.

Next Class to be announced soon.

Call 513-541-3700 to register.

Felted Clog Slippers

felt clog class

This is one of my most popular knitting classes.  Warm, wool slippers are a great gift for Christmas, birthdays, bridal showers and even a wedding present for the couple.  The pattern is a bit complicated, but I help you to break it down into easy steps and teach you to understand the pattern.  They actually knit up fairly quickly since the yarn is held double throughout.  Must know how to cast on, knit purl and bind off.

Next classes to be announced soon.


Hat Class:  Learn to Knit in the Round and take your skills to the next level
