Class Title:  Rampart Scarf

Teacher Name: Laura Barker

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee: $50.00

Class Day/Time: Saturday, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Class Description:

Looking for a new scarf shape with an alternative to ruffles? Lear to knit this bold scarf that takes full advantage of entrelac’s natural shape to mimic a castle rampart and channel your inner warrior, royalty, or both! Rampart looks great in solids or in color changing yarns, both long and short repeats. It works with any yarn weight from fingering to bulky, and uses 400 yards no matter which you choose. If you want a longer or shorter scarf, or like to play yarn chicken with your stash, Rampart is easily modified. All blocks are worked over 6 stitches in 1×1 rib. For picking up stitches, my Double Half Stitch Pickup method makes the pickup disappear into the rib to make Rampart truly reversible. While some experience with entrelac is helpful, block-by-block diagrams make it possible for new entrelac knitters to follow along too. Entrelac is the knitting equivalent of playing with Legos, just work tiny rectangles and stack them up, with no seaming required.

Level:  Intermediate

Registration necessary, class size limited to 20

Supplies Needed:

This scarf may be knit in any weight yarn from fingering to worsted, using approximately 350 yds, regardless of weight; a yarn that has some color change is recommended.  Because both entrelac and ribbing tend to make your fabric more dense, go up a needle size or two for a nice drape, US#4/3.5mm for fingering weight up to US#9/5.5mm for worsted weight.

Materials Fee:  None
