The Beach Buddy Tote will be a fun, fast project for the summer. You need to know how to knit and have some knowledge of color work; if you have no knowledge of color work, it is still possible to successfully finish this project. The pattern can be finished with seven colors or three. We will have kits for 5 people only. Once the knitting is finished, you can take the project home and felt it, or Arlene can felt it for you for a small fee. We will start July 9 at 1 PM and will work till 3 PM. And we will meet each Tuesday after that the same hours. Since this is a quick knit; the last two meetings will be used for felting and for taking pictures of finished projects.
Your homework for this class will be to get your yarn early and complete a gauge swatch for the project. If you do not care about the size of your tote, it is not necessary to complete the gauge swatch.
You will need a US 11 Needle and a kit with the yarn and a needle.
