The wilderness surrounding North House is a great place to spot a moose. All you need is a lot of time and a little luck. Or a little time and a lot of luck. Either way, capture the iconic northern ungulate in wool as you knit your own whimsical moose hat: just as exciting and rewarding as spotting a moose in the wild, with fewer blackflies, we promise. This unique and memorable design is knit in the round using traditional Scandinavian stranded knitting techniques, corrugated rib and Latvian Braids. Students should have intermediate knitting skills including casting on and knitting proficiently. The pattern cost of $5 will be paid to the instructor at the beginning of class. Materials will cost an additional $10-25 for students purchasing yarn and needles from instructor. Youth ages 12+ are welcome to participate with an adult.
