With a Nod to Ms. Walker KAL Jumpstart - $15

Saturday, April 2nd, 2-4p

The second we saw this pattern on our Ravelry feed, we were in love!  We immediately ordered some Zauberball sock colorpacks and have been pondering which yarns we'll use.  Carolyn Bloom took inspiration from Barbara Walker, guru of knitting stitch patterns, and designed this gorgeous mosaic knit scarf.  We'll be hosting a knit-a-long for this pattern in April, but this class is for people who need a little help getting started or who aren't familiar with mosaic knitting.  Once you're all set and knitting away, join the KAL chatter and post pictures in our Ravelry group.  We can't wait to see what color combos everyone chooses!
