Fiber Arts: Knitting a Wheat Scarf
Description: Learn all the basics of knitting – casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off – while creating a simple, textural, reversible scarf. Absolutely no knitting experience required. This is also a perfect refresher course for someone who hasn’t picked up a knitting needle in a while. Students will learn the building blocks of a rewarding knitting practice and leave with new skills, a partially finished scarf, and all the resources needed to complete this project at home.
Our local yarn store, Fiber Artwork, is curating supply kits with the following items:
The Wheat Scarf pattern is part of The Simple Collection by Tin Can Knits. The Simple Collection is created for sharing. These patterns are provided as free PDFs along with easy to follow online tutorials making this resource perfect for new knitters building skills and confidence.
Instructor: Katie Van Houten of Flint River Knitwear taught herself how to knit almost 20 years ago while on bed rest with her oldest child. Since then, she has expanded her craft into knitting lace, cables, and stranded color work in shawls, hats, socks, and sweaters. Katie is most proud of the garments that she has test knit as part of the design process for local Huntsville knitwear designer Knitosophy. Check out some of her finished work on Instagram @flintriverknitwear.
