Why Knit & Purl, Let's Flax and Swirl!

About class

In this one day class we will explore two of the most popular and visually appealing temari stitches. The flax stitch (Asanoha Kagari) is often used as a background filling stitch on larger temari, but can also make delicate stand-alone designs. Varigated threads in particular can shine when used for flax temari. The swirl stitch (Uzamaki Kagari) can be used to create stunning temari on an array of different ball divisions. With a little practice this simple technique will have you creating impossible, dizzying works of thread art. Please bring one pre-wrapped temari base (approx. 24 cm in circumference). A second temari base and all other supplies will be provided, and you will create one of each of these incredible designs. (Temari 101, or basic wrapping, simple division marking, and stitching skills are required).
