Learn how to combine a fabric with yarn to create a mixed-media project. This hands-on class will teach you how to measure and create a square-armhole-style garment. Bring fleece, wool, or other fabric of similar weight. We will plan knit or crochet sleeves and a collar or scarf to complete it. Students will measure each other, draft their pattern, then combine yarn and stitch pattern (knit or crochet) to coordinate with the fabric. Various design concepts and combination techniques will be discussed in class.
