About this experience

Join us in learning the ins-and-outs of making a colorwork Scottish tam (like a beret but worn straight on the head). In this super fun class you will learn oh-so-many skills, including:

+ confidently knit with two colors holding one in each hand
+ decrease for the 'crown' while working kaleidoscopic patterning
+ two-color corrugated ribbing & adding color accents with duplicate stitch
+ finishing and blocking to make the perfect size and shape hat

Lori has admired Scottish knitted tam (beret-style hat) and other colorwork knitting techniques for many years, and when she finally started making them she couldn't stop! They look more complicated than they are and are oh-so-intriguing to knit.

This is a 2-SESSION workshop that meets on all of the following dates (apologies for the confusion - our event booking app is working on making this clearer in the future!). By signing up for this $120 workshop you are signing up for 5 hours of class over the following dates.

Saturday - DECEMBER 7 // 9-11:30AM
Saturday - DECEMBER 14 // 9-11:30AM

This is an intermediate knitting class. Students should know how to knit in both English (yarn in right hand) and Continental (yarn in left hand) styles - YouTube has a variety of tutorials if you'd like to brush up on the skills beforehand!


Price includes thoughtfully sourced materials (no additional materials fees). Students also get 15% off in the shop while they are workshop students (for multi-session/week workshops this discount applies to the entire duration of workshop).

All classes meet at our shop at 606 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia PA 19119 - in the heart of Mt. Airy Village. There is plenty of free on-street parking as well as High Point Cafe and Weaver's Way Co-op steps away for your food and beverage needs. Kiddos are always welcome to hang in the shop!
