No-Pattern Custom Fitting Hats Workshop - with Kate Atherley
Join us for an evening while you learn to make a hat for any head, with any yarn in your stash!
In this 3 hour class, you will learn how to work a top-down hat to fit any head, without a swatch! We’ll show you how to customize the style and fit – work to the length you want, make it slouchy or fitted, fold-over cuff or beanie-style, add custom ribbings and cuff patterns, work with different colours. Whether you want to make a quick gift or use up your stash, or free yourself from patterns, this class will make you a better and more powerful hat knitter.
