April Meeting

This month the program is on knitting a Moebius. In order to learn the cast on, you will need a long circular needle with a flexible cable. A 36” can work, but something a little longer might be easier to manipulate. Bordhi recommends a 47” circular.  Choose yarn according to needle size (worsted, size 8). A 40” length should be fine.

Casting on for a moebius will be the main focus. We’ll look at a few ways to get one started. The beginning is the main challenge.

Hope to see everyone there this Thursday, 6:30 p.m., at the Larry J. Ringer Library in College Station!
