Fox Paw Technique with Xandy Peters
In this class students will learn the basics of knitting with stacked stitches and begin a Fox Paws Wrap. We will start with an introduction to the stacked increase and decrease technique with some swatches in an easy stack pattern. After all this hard work, there is a coloring break where we explore color choices.
In the second half of the class, we will start working on our Fox Paws Swatches. Students will learn ways to check their own work and fix any problems that arise at home while testing out their new yarn and color choice in the pattern.
Note: Patterns will be provided.
_Worsted weight scrap yarn in multiple colors and 5 colors of yarn in the weight of your choice for a final project
