THIS Saturday, June 17 is WV Fest in downtown Charles Town. Washington Street will be closed to driving traffic and full of street vendors, crafts, food, music, and fun! Yarnability will be open and sporting our love of West Virginia.
This month I am scheduling our “second Sunday” class during the WV Fest. Stop by Yarnability to knit or crochet your own WV pride scarf using Uptown Worsted Spirit Stripes from Universal Yarn. This simple ribbed scarf will showcase the short color repeats in the yarn to create an argyle appearance. Buy the yarn, get the pattern and the class for FREE!
Classes will be held Saturday June 17 at 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.
Yarn: 2 skeins of Uptown Worsted Spirit Stripes
Knitting Needles: US size 7, 8, or 9. This pattern is highly dependent on your knitting gauge. So bring a variety of sizes. We will try each needle to determine which needle size will provide you with the desired result.
Knitting Pattern: Ribbed Pennant Scarf
Crochet Hook: US I (5.5mm) or hook size too obtain gauge. Bring a variety!
Crochet Pattern: Color Pooling Argyle Scarf
