Spotted Fever

Get the fever! Michelle’s latest design, Spotted Fever, knit with Baah! Yarn La Jolla, is sure to be catching!

SPOTTED FEVER
$35 – pattern included; supplies extra
One 2-hour class
Instructor: Michelle Hunter
Skill level: Easy Knit

Thursday, June 18, 6:00pm – 8:00pm (FULL!) OR
Tuesday, June 23, 2:00pm – 4:00pm OR 6:00pm – 8:00pm *evening session added by popular demand!

Learn to knit this whimsical shawl where opaque polka dots dance on a sheer background. The design is made possible through a magical combination of Navajo knitting and Intarsia. Unlike traditional Intarsia, only one skein is used at a time with no interlocking or ends to weave in at the end of the project.

NO previous experience with Navajo knitting or Intarsia is required! You’ll become an expert in these fast, fun, and easy-to-learn techniques in class!

Using fingering-weight yarn, the pattern is available in two sizes. Both sizes are perfect for warming the shoulders on a chilly evening (or in a chilly, overly air-conditioned room). The larger shawl would make a stunning wrap for the modern bride!

The class fee includes the pattern, expert finishing tips, and hands-on instruction for this unique technique. We will also explore how to incorporate the skill into an endless array of design possibilities.

This class is suited for knitters comfortable with the knit and purl stitches and basic basic shaping.Sizes: Small (Large) – 60″ (76″) wide. 33″ (40″) deep, at center point.Gauge: Approximate 16 sts and 23 rows = 4″ in St st after blocking.

Supplies needed:

  • Yarn: 760 (1,100) yards fingering-weight
  • Needles: 32-40″ US 9 circular or size needed to obtain gauge. Bring extra needles (bigger and smaller) to adjust size if necessary.
  • Stitch markers
  • Blunt-tip tapestry needle

Sample knit with La Jolla by Baah! Yarn, 2 (3) skeins, in colorway Burmese Ruby. Pictured in Large.

    Hi Cindy,

    Yes, the pattern will be for sale after class. I don’t know about video support, but I’d be very surprised if Michelle didn’t have a video to help.
    Miss you!

    Happy knitting,
    Kristen @ Knitting Temptations
