Getting Knitty for The Polish Festival

The Polish Festival on Roncesvalles in almost upon us, and we have been as busy as the beavers making a very special knit show to entertain the festival goers.

We have a regular knit-factory going on. This year’s Polish Festival we decided to dedicate our window to a smorgasbord of knit flowers inspired by Polish Folk Art motifs. Here ↑ they are resting before their debut this coming weekend. We sure hope you’ll come down to Roncesvalles Avenue, have some pierogies and take in our latest creations.

Just off my needles is this chevron blanket. It’s prep for our upcoming ZigZag Blanket Workshop.
I’ve always loved the chevron knit pattern, there is so many ways to vary the colours and textures and widths of the stripes to create different effect. It looks completely charming and whimsical knit into a baby blanket and then transforms into a chic accessory when knit into a scarf or wrap like fashion heavy-weights  Missoni. like to do it.

In the ZigZag Blanket Workshop we will learn how to augment basic knit and purl techniques to stitch the chevron pattern. We will spend a lot of time discussing how to keep track of our pattern so that mistakes are few. We will also discuss how to fix any mistakes should they impolitely crash the party.
