Kelbourne Woolen Worsted Weight Hat Class Series 


Want to learn new techniques? Kelbourne Woolen's Year of Hats in 2019 are a great sampling of techniques. We're holding a series of six classes during 2020 where each introduces new techniques. The first is the "February" Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn shown above in Malabrigo Rios. This hat includes a provisional cast on, hemmed brim, working in the round, charted pattern, and crown decreases. The "February" Hat class will be held on Saturdays, Feb 8th, 15th, and 22nd at 2pm-3pm in the classroom. Additional hat classes will follow every other month through 2020.
