Wonderful Wallaby

June 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am CDT


This class will be held over Zoom virtual classrooms.

Difficulty Level: Beginner (experience with knits, purls, and working in the round required)

Part class, part KAL, this new “learn-along” will keep you in stitches (in more ways than one!) The Wonderful Wallaby has been a fan favorite for decades: basic enough for a first-time garment but entertaining enough for experienced knitters, with sizing for everyone in the family!  We’ll tackle the key points of the Wonderful Wallaby (the pocket, the sleeves, the yoke, and the hood) together in five relaxed meetings. Work at your own pace in between meetings to complete a Wallaby for you or someone you love. Then show off your hard work at our Wallaby Wrap-Up meeting. We’re going to have so much fun!

Schedule – Six 1-2 hour class meetings as detailed below:

Saturday, June 13, 9-11:00- Kickoff Day: Measuring swatches, choosing a size, and casting on together.

Saturday, June 27, 9-11:00- The Pocket: Setting up, knitting, and rejoining the pocket to the body.
