Lake Winnipesaukee Hat w/Maryly Matthewman – League of NH Craftsmen
May 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
One event on May 25, 2019 at 10:00 am
Meredith, NH – Spend a few creative hours with us at The League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery on Saturday, May 11th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and Saturday, May 25th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM to create an original knitted hat design dedicated to the beautiful unique 72 square mile glacial lake in New Hampshire with instructor, Maryly Matthewman.
This special hat is a colorful motley mix of Romney Ridge hand dyed, locally sourced wool knit in Fair Isle, ancient Latvian patterns, Estonian and textured stitches which mingle to form trees, waves and beautiful mountains.
Maryly’s knitting style is relaxed and based on a concept of change, texture, depth, imperfection, irregularity and most importantly, INDIVIDUALITY! Waves, trees, and mountain landscapes are constantly changing, have depth, and are not perfect. Make this your creation like nobody else can. You will become a hat designer with splashes of color here and beads there!
This workshop is split into 2 sessions.
Session 1: Review of texture stitches, a new cast-on idea, beautiful ribbing, Estonian Nupp, color work ideas, and how to incorporate beads into your knitting. You will be expected to do some knitting in between sessions. Session 2: How to finish hat top, bind off and folding, various tassel ideas and beads of course!
Class fee: $75 includes 2, 4 hour sessions. Materials fee: $40 includes Romney Ridge Farm Blend Yarn, hand dyed 50 yd skeins in 5 colors of Lake Winnipesaukee. Pattern for Lake Winnipesaukee Hat. You will have enough yarn for another colorful hat or fingerless mitts. Bead for tassel, bits of unique art yarn for tassel and some glass beads to incorporate into your hat. I will also have additional skeins for purchase. Skills: moderate beginner – advanced Students to bring: #5 16 inch circular needle, basic knitting supplies. Your own trinkets or beads to incorporate into hat. Very small crochet hook
