Patterns of the Week
 

Rum Daisy




"I've been playing with shawl construction lately, so this one is a bottom up crescent with short rows to create extra depth at center. Detail is heavy at bottom for a satisfying weight, and stockinette and more delicate lace stripes at top create a lighter fabric for draping around the neck."









A tee

"Contiguous recipe for an A line tee with lace sleeves and half back. Short rows are used to shape neckline, shoulder "seams" and bottom of back. Front of tee is shorter than back.
I walk you through step by step on how to make the perfect fitting tee to your size requirements.
I provide cast on sts for sizes 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, and 44 to help you get started. From there all you need to do is follow the recipe to a perfect fit!"


Cherry Blossom Cowl


"Celebrating the art of Kate Slaby of Spencer,WI, our signature yarn inspiration is from her piece, Japanese Cherry Blossoms. We have incorporated simple and optional bead knitting into the design with this easy bead placement technique. Cables bordered by a bit of lace work and beads, twist throughout the cowl, resembling the tree trunk, branches, and blossoms of this lovely painting. Please enjoy the pattern!"

Does anybody remember those books that were popular a few years ago called "choose your own adventure?" The book went to a certain point, and then the author would say, "If you think "this" is the next thing that happened, go to page X, and if you think "that" is what happened, go to page Y." By making his own choices, the reader was able to determine how the book ended.

At Knitting in the Red, we're going to have "Choose Your Own Adventure" knitting classes!   If there's a technique you want to learn, a pattern you're struggling with, or some knitting concept you don't understand, sign up for a one-hour lesson to meet your need.

In May, Choose Your Own Adventures are scheduled on Wednesday, May 20 from 6-7:00 p.m, and on Saturday, May 23, from 11-12:00. Please call the shop no later than Saturday, May 16, with your desired topic, so that materials and a good lesson can be planned. These classes will be limited, so sign up soon.

Patterns of the Week
Anemoi
"A fun little cardigan perfect for layering during cool spring days and for air-conditioned work spaces in summer, featuring capped raglan lace sleeves. The fronts are simple stockinette to keep the cardi appropriate for work, but the top part of the back is worked in the same lace pattern as the sleeves."





Summer shawl

"My inspiration for this delicate shawl was overgrown rockery next to my apartment house (which is not so delicate). Each spring this rockery is buried under the Lily of the Valley and I absolutely adore it. This means that spring is officially here.
I wanted to reflect the nature of this flower - tenderness, hope and promise of new beginnings. And remember the smell? Too bad I can't put the fragrant of this blossom in my knitting."

Shells n' Flowers Baby Caps


"Dress up your babies with these adorable hats. You have a choice of 2 lovely interchangeable flowers, that are included in this pattern. By changing the yarn weight and colors, you can have a large selection of different flowers. This pattern is written in US terms.
The pattern includes 2 versions of hats with 3 border variations and many sizes!"

Classroom Corner is a new feature of the Knitting in the Red newsletter. Watch this space once a month to find out about upcoming classes and workshops!

I'm Lisa Ragan, a knitting instructor at Knitting in the Red. I learned to knit about 11 years ago when one of my daughters was introduced to knitting by a friend. I had to learn to help her progress, and soon I was hooked! Since that time, I've been on a quest to continually expand my skills and find ways to share my knowledge with others. I'd love the opportunity to introduce you to knitting or help you increase your skills!

Knitting in the Red offers a variety of classes, including a number of scheduled classes on our monthly calendar, as well as individually scheduled private sessions. Fees for classes are generally $20/hour. As we build our class program, we offer a 10% discount for both you and a friend when you sign up together.

Supplies for a class are always offered at a 10% discount.

Upcoming classes include:

--Block-of-the-Month (technique squares that can be made into an afghan)
--a Mother's Day gift project
--socks on two circulars
--a spring shrug
--beginner knit

As always, if there is a particular skill you'd like to learn, just ask Jana next time you're in the shop, or email jknitsalot@gmail.com . We're always happy to schedule a class, private lesson, or help session at your convenience.

Blessings, Lisa & Jana
Patterns of the Week
Sproutlette Dress
"This sweet little spring inspired dress is just the thing for the baby girl in your life! Worn on its own in the summer, or over tights and a t-shirt during the colder months, it will be a welcome addition to any baby wardrobe. A fun, playful scalloped eyelet edging on the hem and sleeves add the perfect touch of whimsy."

Sonetto Shawl

"Slightly asymmetrical in shape and design but very simple to knit.  It is cast on at one wingtip with a few stitches and then simply knit in widening rows until it is large enough or you run out of yarn, whichever comes first.  There are gradual increases along one side, touches of very easy lace and a little soothing stocking stitch.  No short rows, no counting but enough happening to keep you interested."


Rocio


"RocĂ­o is the Spanish word for dew drops. So delicate and fragile. They seat on the leaves, catching the sunlight and throwing it back out.This breezy cardigan is worked from the top down, seamlessly. The sleeves are worked in the round, with short row sleeve caps."
