Clayoquot hat class

Clayoquot hat designed by Tin Can Knits is such a great project for your first dip into colourwork knitting – with no floats longer than 3 stitches you can learn colourwork without worrying about catching floats. In this class we’ll cover one and two handed colourwork, as well as my ‘traffic light’ system for three colour knitting rows to ensure your yarns never get tangled!

If you'd like to make this hat using WildWestDye's yarn, you'll need 3 x CakeQuarters aka 75g of the main colour, and 1 x CakeQuarter aka 25g each of contrast colour one and two from the Naturally dyed soft DK collection.

Hat pictured uses RoseyVille, SunSling and NightOwl, if you'd like to see some three colour combos for your Clayoquot hat, send me an email and I'll send you some options.

Next class starts Friday July 9th from 6-7.30pm PDT via Zoom for 4 weeks – if you’ve never tried colourwork, or even if you haven’t made a hat before, this class is for you!
