Beth is a knitting teacher, designer, and technical editor whose curiosity has led her to visit many countries (stranded color, EPS, k1b, lace, ...) on the knitting-world map. Originally from New England, she now lives in San Francisco, where mountains, ocean, and Haight Street are always good sources of inspiration. What she loves most about teaching is finding ways to make light bulbs pop on in her students' heads and helping them grow as knitters.

6118 Easy Cowl-o-rama!
Design your own cowl! Keep it simple or make it complex; class concepts will help you decide how much youâ€™re ready to take on.
Youâ€™ll learn about types of stitch patterns, pattern repeats ('multiple of 6 sts') and balancing stitches (the '+ 2' in 'multiple of 6 sts + 2'), selvedge stitches, options for working with large stitch repeats and panels, and considerations for working methods (flat or circular? widthwise or lengthwise?), all of which influence and affect overall design possibilities.
At the end of class youâ€™ll be on your way to your own cowl designs.
