430  Kitty Bryan—Knitting Plaid
Experience:  Be able to do knitted cast on, garter stitch, cast off
Workshop Description:  Do you love plaid, but believe it’s a woven fabric?  Learn to make your own tartan without a loom.  This class has three components. There is a brief discussion of Scot tartan history followed by an introduction to clan setts (weaving patterns).  Students learn to read a sett and convert it into a knitting pattern.  More than 132 traditional setts will be available to explore a tartan of interest.  Once students understand knitted tartan construction, the class will learn to knit a Clan MacLeod inspired cowl.  The cowl pattern is provided with the workbook.
Participants should bring:  Pencil, sharp scissors, US 6 (4.0 mm) circular needle, tapestry needle,  wound skeins of DK yarn in three different solid colors, 15 yards (14 m)/0.2 oz (5 g) each.  Black and navy are not recommended due to lighting conditions.  Optional: Tartan of interest.
Homework:  None
Material Fee:  $10  Knitting Plaid Workbook and Clan MacLeod Inspired Pattern
Class Limit:  10
