Beaded Beret by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas

Beaded BeterKoigu%20Beaded%20Beret

As many of you are aware, I love Churchmouse Yarns & Teas patterns.  Their Koigu Beaded Beret is well written and easy to follow.  During our three day, 1 hour class, you will learn the Magic Loop method for knitting in the round as well as a inovative way to knit with beads.  Once you see how easy this technique is, you will be adding beads to everything you knit.  We will use approximately 300 yards of fingering weight yarn and a 47 inch #3 needle.

The class fee is $35.00, please call The Fibre Studio to reserve your spot.

Possible Color Choices

We have been dyeing yarn as fast as we can for this popular Ravelry pattern.  We are presenting color selections for the MC (main color) in 4 ounce skeins, with CC (contrasting colors) in 2 ounce skeins so there will be very little left over yarn.  This project is knit using DK weight yarn on a #3 needle (or appropriate needle to get gauge).  The leaf is constructed using short row shaping.

For so long, you have wanted us to add this class to our calendar, but we were unable to because the yarn had been discontinued.  Well your wait is over.  I have a lovely yarn that in my opinion is better than what the model was knit using.  We are dyeing it up in beautiful colors as fast as we can.  Heike N will instruct the class, fee is $40.00 to be paid to Heike.  Remember you will receive a 10% discount on needed classroom materials.
