Session 1: New Stitches, Yarn and Color Selection.Learn the stitches with two practice mini-projects from Xandy Peters: Star and Leaf projects; Select your yarn colors and experiment with stripe/color order.

Materials needed for Session 1:

  • Medium-weight, bouncy scrap yarn. Pick something with some stretch to it. It‚Äôs nice to have a couple of colors for experimenting. Weight doesn‚Äôt matter, just pick something that is comfortable for experimenting.
  • Needles to match. You may want to bring a few different types to see what works best. Wood needles can be tricky for this project as there is a lot of stress on the needles and some have experienced breakage. Circulars are suggested because of the flexible cable.
