What could be cozier than a pair of felted wool slippers? Join Jon to knit a pair that you will then felt down to size. We will be following the Fiber Trends pattern and using Lamb's Pride wool yarn because of its superior felting properties and rich, saturated colors. Time will be allowed between the 3rd and 4th class to give everyone enough time to knit the 2nd slipper. Felting will be done at Silk Road Textiles during the 4th class.
Students should know the basic concepts for casting on, increasing, decreasing, and knitting in the round in order to be successful in this class. You will learn how to pick up knitted edges to make a raised welt during class.
Be sure to purchase your yarn and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles, online or in store!
Supplies to purchase at Silk Road Textiles:
One skein Lamb's Pride for the main slipper
Two skeins Lamb's Pride for the contrast sole and leg opening

Bring an old pillowcase with zipper to the 4th class to use for felting.
