In this fun class, Sandra will show you how to transform stray balls of yarn into beautiful hats – single-strand, multiple-strand, or whatever comes to hand. Her pattern (The Mad Hatter) provides part of the answer to greater confidence in hat-making. But she’ll talk as well about how to choose effective stitch patterns, edgings, stitch tensions, decorations, and toppers – how to be sure the hat will fit (for kids as well as adults) and how to know which yarns and colors can be mixed successfully.

Materials and Homework: Bring a pile of yarn leftovers, preferably in animal fiber or animal-fiber blend (unless you have allergies). We will mix them with our leftovers to create unique fabrics. Any weight. Any texture. The more the merrier. Bring a range of needles from, say, 6 through 13. If you have 16-inch circular needles, bring them.

For most classes, we hope you’ll use our beautiful yarns!

*For stash-buster classes, you surely may use your own yarns mixed with ours.

All classes include detailed handouts or (as relevant) printed patterns. Some include access to our extensive supply of leftovers (for free-form work, e.g.).

We offer refunds (in the form of store credit) up to a week before the class.
