Fractal Danger - $15

Saturdays, December 3rd & 10th, 3-4p

Knitters of all levels will enjoy making this modular accessory using their favorite yarn!  Fractal Danger, a beautifully shaped combination scarf and shawl, can be worked using any yarn.  Students can choose something that really speaks to them or that would make the perfect gift.  Worked in one piece, we will cast on and get the hang of the pattern in the first session.  Once half of your yarn is used, we'll be learning the second section of the pattern together so that you can finish your piece with confidence.
