To celebrate another fabulous 12 months of the Bath Knitting & Crochet Guild, our December session was a festive making get-together and a sneak preview at what we’ve got coming up in January for our members.
Regular tutors and local supporters of the group, Mary Henderson and Janet Friel have created a very special knit-a-long/crochet-a-long for our members. The project is a cowl designed to use up yarn from your stash/leftover from projects while working towards a lightweight garment for spring.
In an homage to the Fashion Museum Bath, who kindly host our group each month, the inspiration for the cowl comes from the current exhibitions A History of Fashion in 100 Objects and Royal Women. The stitches are a progression from simple to slightly complex, and Mary and Janet will be on hand at regular intervals to provide assistance and share the next stage of the project.
For anyone looking for quick festive makes in the remaining few days before Christmas, have a look at these patterns from our latest session (all freely available online).
