Warming Up to Linen

With Elizabeth Doherty

November 4, 2017 | 10:00 am | Class limit: 20

Made from the long, straight fibers of the flax plant’s stem, linen is cool and drapey, the perfect thing for knitting warm-weather garments. But if you’ve never knit with an inelastic fiber, linen yarns can feel pretty different the first time you try them.

This three-hour class will focus on getting comfortable with linen—how to avoid over-tensioning the yarn; understanding how linen fabric transforms with washing and wearing, and how to predict the look and hand of your finished fabric; as well as techniques for joining new skeins, weaving in ends, and making your stitches in linen look just plain beautiful.

Materials:
1 skein Quince and Co Sparrow, wound and ready to knit with, 1 skein Quince and Co Kestrel, wound and ready to knit with, knitting needles, wood and/or metal, in sizes US 2, US 3, US 4, US 9 and US 10, yarn needle, hand sewing needle and thread, any color
