Adventures in Knitting with Olga Buraya-Kefelian - Summer TWO COLOR Option


**We have already placed our order for this yarn with de rerum natura, however, we can squeeze in a few more spots. When you place your order, we will confirm that we are able to fulfill it and will immediately refund any order that we are not going to be able to fuflill.

I am so excited to announce our second project in the Adventures in Knitting series with local designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian! The summer project is the Sideways Canvas Top designed in De Rerum Natura Antigone. This brand new design will be available first to those who sign up for this club package. Olga will pair this pattern with new skill building videos and hand selected colors of yarn for the project. When you pre-order the season’s kit, you receive access to this pattern before it is launched to the public, access to Olga’s amazing instructional videos and the yarn needed for the project. Oh, and we’ve thrown in a little extra goodie too.

The pattern will launch to club members one month early, on July 11th. Your pre-ordered kit will ship or be available for store pick up by June 28th. Look for notification from our shop.

Every wardrobe needs a good staple, but some wardrobes are lucky to have pieces like Sideways Canvas! As the name suggests, this easy Stockinette and Reverse Stockinette combo summer top is knit sideways. This project presents you with a unique opportunity to play with both color and texture, whether you choose to make it in solid color or make it bicolor. The fun boxy construction garment consists of two parts - front and back. One side is straight and the other one is shaped using decreases, increases and short rows to achieve better shaping. However this top is interchangeable! The front can be worn as back and vice versa, and you can do the same when you turn it inside out! Versatility at its best! And if you also choose to wait and see about alternating the texture, you can make that final determination before seaming it. Or you can make your choice early and can easily knit this top in 1 piece! Whichever method you follow, you will create a basic canvas that you will be able to style with at least with 4 different looks or further embellish if so desired. In this pattern you will find 9 video tutorials to make your knitting experience as smooth as possible while adding more techniques into your skill set! CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!
