Monday, July 28, 2014

6:00 p.m.

beverage cozy


Come in out of the heat this July and learn how to make a beverage cozy for your favorite ice cold (or hot) drink of choice. They can be knitted or crocheted and make quick last minute gifts. Watch as an extremely simple pattern can be transformed with a little bit of seaming and duplicate stitch.
 
July's first class will be used to start our project and the second class will be for attaching and decorating. Bring your favorite thermos or glass as a template for your custom cozy. Worsted weight yarn and your favorite pair of corresponding needles or crochet hook will work best for this project. Please call 202-727-0321 for more information and ask for Mike.
 
As always, participation in the Knitty Gritty Committee's group activities is completely optional so feel free to bring your own knitting, too!
