Meet Carex!

bav cowl 1

Carex is the class project (along with a pair of coordinating cuffs) for my Twisted Stitches class.  I wanted a pattern that utilized traditional twisted stitch patterns that would include the different permutations of stitch patterns you’ll commonly see.

Note:  There are still spots for this class at Taos!
