No Wrong Side Scarves with Edie Eckman
Problem: You love to knit scarves, but you hate to have the wrong side showing. You detest garter stitch. You want good-looking reversible patterns so you can relax and look fabulous, no matter which side is 'up'.

Solution: Take this class. Move beyond garter stitch to explore fun-to-knit stitch patterns that have two right sides and self-edging selvedges. You'll be casting on, knitting, and binding off to create a mini scarf with no wrong sides. Problem solved!

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
