Knitting & Crochet Classes at Backstitches

Curious Cowl In Brioche
- Feb 29, 2020 10:30 am

What to try a little brioche? This cowl is a great introduction to brioche knitting. Have fun with color and select something bright or combine two unexpected colors for high contrast. Using Ultra Pima cotton, this cowl is perfect to wear in the Spring and early Summer.

Cost: $ 40.00
Wonderous Hug (Crochet)
- Feb 29, 2020 10:30 am

This cardigan makes you feel like you are wearing a hug. A simple rectangle is transformed into a beautiful shrug-like cardigan with two short seams. The pattern is written for one-size but can easily be modified in width and length. It is the perfect project for adventurous beginners and intermediate crocheters who are ready to tackle a large project or first garment. You must be confident with identifying stitch placement, working single, half-double and double crochet stitches. Being able to work a half-double crochet foundation row will be beneficial but not mandatory.

Cost: $ 50.00
Wrapped in Cables
- Mar 14, 2020 10:30 am

The lovely cables in this shawl are not hard to do! This is a beginner friendly class for those who are ready to go beyond the knit and purl stitches. Come learn something new and make a beautiful shawl.

Cost: $ 40.00
Classic Color Work Cowl
- Mar 14, 2020 01:00 pm

This cowl is a fun mosaic knit that will keep your attention while building your skills by teaching new stitches. It uses just two skeins of yarn and can be modified to make a shorter cowl to fit close to the neck or made as an infinity scarf like the model.

Cost: $ 40.00
Vintage Laced Edge Cowl
- Mar 28, 2020 01:30 pm

Do you love the look of asymmetric shawls but have a hard time figuring out how to wrap them, only to have them slip off throughout the day? This project is the answer. Like a shawl, this piece is worked flat but a quick (3") seam transforms it into a beautiful cowl that mimics the look and drape of an asymmetric shawl without all the fuss. The instructions are both written and charted. This cowl would be a good skill-building project for newer knitters looking to venture into some lace. Experienced knitters will find this project relaxing with very satisfying results.

Cost: $ 40.00
