‘Deco Fans” is inspired by classic Art Deco wallpaper. Although the stitch pattern looks complex, it features a combination of slipped stitches and cabling so colors are worked one at a time. Worked in two colors of Mecha, the slipped stitches of this pattern provide a great opportunity to pair one semi-solid colorway with one of the highly variegated or watercolor colorways that for which Malabrigo is known. Knit flat, the cowl has a button band to provide a variety of different ways for wearing.
In this class we will cover: Chart reading, slip stitches, cables (1/2 and 1/3), picking up stitches and button holes.
