We will be knitting the Avery Cowl by The Fibre Company, which is a beautiful lace project. You will be given the pattern on the day, but need to bring your own yarn and a circular needle that is 60cm long and 3.75 or 4mm (5 or 6 US), depending on the yarn you choose.
Any DK or sportweight yarn will be suitable; the pattern uses a total of 298 yards / 273 m. We are happy to help you choose.Taught by Meghan Fernandes.
"I first started knitting over a decade ago, completing an entire sweater for myself as a first project. Not being able to stop since, it seems making clothes is in my blood: my grandparents owned a men's tailoring shop in Washington DC and my grandmother in Goa also made lovely intricate crocheted items. That's where I first learned to crochet from a family friend on a hot day with the local lizards watching!
Originally educated in English Literature, I wrote my MA thesis on knitting in women's writing, to be published shortly. My article on colour in Regency fashion will also be published shortly in a special Jane Austen-themed issue of Interweave Knits magazine. Doing research for these projects has enabled me to appreciate the history of knitting in the past and the amazing culture of knitting we have today. I believe every handmade item has a history knitted right into it."* Pattern supplied, but bring your own yarn and a circular needle that is 60cm long and 3.75 or 4mm (5 or 6 US).
