DON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY LACE, PATTERNS OR CHARTS ANY LONGER! Grab your needles and knit the ETCHED RIO. This stunning garment has a swing and fluidity reminiscent of woven fabric. Flattering to every body type, this breathtaking wrap will easily become your favorite accessory. Effortless to wear, a simple 16-stitch lace panel is all this piece requires to be a soothing, intriguing knit. Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson will help you through your first foray into chart reading from 1 to 3 pm Tuesdays, Oct. 2 & 16. This garment was The Flying Needles’ Inaugural Knit-A-Long, and the 50+ people who made this garment ADORE it! This is truly a great accessory to any fashionista’s wardrobe!
