**Notes: You will be writing on your pattern. Please bring a copy if you don’t want to mark your original. Have 1 or 2 skeins of your yarn wound prior to class if it comes in hanks. If you are uncertain of your size or the number of skeins you need, remember that wound yarn cannot be returned. Leave your last 1 or 2 hanks unwound, in case you have over bought.
**To successfully navigate this class, you will have homework between classes that will need to be completed. If you do not have time to complete the homework between classes, we suggest you wait to take the class when you have more time.
