Stratocumulus Capelet Class with Denise Bell
Unspun Icelandic Plötulopi wool yarn is soft and airy, but knitters unfamiliar with working without twist in their yarn might find it intimidating. Its unspun strands are a delight once one discovers how they behaves and learns a few ways to handle this unique yarn. We’ll spend some time learning the ins and outs of how best to handle the Plötulopi wool yarn, swatch for gauge, take a few measurements to ensure a good fit, and cast on for the Stratocumulus Capelet.
Note: You should have basic knitting skills and experience reading charts.
