Participants should bring: US 1 and US 3 16” circular needles, standard knitting kit. Optional set of erasable colored pencils to apply your colors to the pattern provided. If you know your gauge varies from recommended, please bring larger and smaller sized needles “just in case.” DPNs or additional US3 circ will be required to complete the top of the cap using your normal knitting in the round method.
Material fee: $10, includes: (yarn used in class, handouts, pattern). Kit available for $35 or students may use their own fingering weight yarn. Yarn will be available for purchase if different colors are desired.
