Make Your Own West Coast Toque with Sylvia Olsen!

Date(s): Saturday, May 30th 9:00 am- 12:00pm
In conjunction with her Great Canadian Knitting Tour: May 1 - June 15, Cowichan Sweater historian, knitter, award-winning author and master story teller Sylvia Olsen will be in Ottawa on Saturday May 30!   LEARN COAST SALISH COLOURWORK TECHNIQUES Coast Salish colourwork is a unique combination of animal motifs and geometric designs. Many say the truly unusual part of the technique is when you turn the work inside out and see the amazing pebbled look. The technique can be called neither stranded nor jacquard. Learn how to weave two colours into every stitch and achieve the elasticity and interior beauty found in traditional Cowichan knitting. This class will be taught using techniques including throwing the yarn (also known as English or right-hand knitting.) • Students should bring a set of US #10/6mm double pointed and if desired, circular needles. • Workshop includes a toque knitting kit with a pattern and lopi-weight wool in natural Cowichan colours. Skill level: Intermediate   Syl workshop+hat
