Once the basic chain and turn are learned in nålbinding, the next real step is to be able to design and make patterns. In this class you will work on design and creation by focusing on hats. From top to bottom and bottom to top, deciding to cover the ears or not, we will sample, design, measure, decorate, and record. You will gain confidence in working independently and creating your own nålbinding products. There will be a materials fee.
