In this class, offered in both Denver and Fort Collins, Colorado, you will be making TWO of our best selling Aries beanies on a circular knitting machine that is hacked with a DIY motor! This class is great for adults and kids 6+. It's a super fun introduction into machine knitting and you will walk away with two new beanies in your choice of colors! These are beanies we wear on repeat, and make perfect Christmas gifts! We use Lanaloft Sport from the USA mill Brown Sheep Company, which boasts incredibly saturated, beautiful color and is incredibly soft and not itchy in the least.
This yarn is made from a blend of USA-bred Corriedale, Rambouillet, and Columbian sheep. NOTE: If you have a wool allergy, we also have a giant bin of non-wool yarns to choose from.
You choose your beanie colors from the Brown Sheep Lanaloft Sport selection (DO NOT buy yarn from these links - we will order on our end. Yarn is included in class price.):
Skills you will learn: casting on, machine knitting with a circular machine, DIY motor hack for this machine, casting off, yarn washing and blocking, beanie creation.
Amber Reaves teaches our Denver class, and Laura Goodrich will be teaching our Fort Collins class.
