Möbius Cast-On mini class

Infinity scarves are the fashion accessory trend right now. They make great stash projects and are perfect for magic ball knitting. Your skein will automatically produce mirrored stripes and you can work until you run out of yarn if you cast-on your möbius from the center out. Time to learn Cat Bordi’s fast and clever cast on.

Skill level is intermediate.
Prerequisite: Should be comfortable with the architecture of knit and purl stitches.

Maximum 20 students.

mini workshop

Students receive a handout in booklet form including the pattern for the Sonic Boom cowl (shown below).
No materials fee.

No homework. Knowledge of Elizabeth Zimmermann's invisible cast-on (auxiliary wool cast-on) is advantageous, but not required.

class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color)
long-ish (24-inches or more) circular needles to work that yarn
one beginning of round stitch marker

No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
