Ponchini 101 with Steven Berg
The ponchini is the new shawl: a versatile garment with so many design possibilities. This is your chance to cast on one with the help of the Ponchini Master himself. Experience the magic of mixology, taking a variety of yarns from different brands, weights, and fiber contents to create a magical and unique wrap. Use one of the patterns from Ponchini Vol. 1 and learn its structure, seaming, and wearability. Steven will teach you his favorite tips and tricks as he guides you through your first ponchini.

__The Ponchini Vol. 1 book (can be acquired in class)
__a minimum of 3 yarns to work with; we love to experiment with finer weights like lace and fingering and fiber contents like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight. Yarns should be chosen and wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class. Choose a color palette when bringing your stash to make it cohesive
__a variety of needle sizes will be needed so bring a good selection (we recommend an interchangeable set)
__stitch markers
__tapestry needle
__tape measure
__a work-in-progress or finished project for show and tell (the desire to be admired is not required but it is recommended!)
