New Pattern, New CraftEDU Class

I've been busy lately working on a new design and new class for CraftEDU.  The pattern is also available for sale as a Ravelry download for $4.50. buy now

It's a sideways cabled hat that incorporates short rows for the shaping, plus lots of other techniques not normally found in a hat, like grafting in pattern and picking up sts.  Yarn weight and needle size allow you to size the pattern up and down.  I used Koigu KPPPM and 3.0mm needles for the baby hat in the tea cup and good old Cascade 220 and size 7/4.5mm needles for the magenta and periwinkle hats above.

There's a free Preview of the class at CraftEDU, and we're running a BAZINGA! through noon tomorrow (Mountain time) that will give you a discount off the price.  The class includes in-depth photo tutorials with lots of voice over naration, as well as video tutorials, and runs close to an hour and a half in length.  There are even tips on designing with a graft in mind!  A boatload of great techniques to learn with just one hank of yarn!

Once again, the great thing about a CraftEDU class is that you can skip the parts on techniques you already know, or watch the techniques that are new or troublesome over and over again.

I plan to offer this techniques-packed class locally, too, so stay tuned for more information.
