Fox Paws is a dreamy technique that creates an intricate striped motif of interlocking ‘fox feet.’ Finished pieces make a beautiful wrap or shawl, but also can be displayed as an artful table runner. The genius of this pattern is that it utilizes increases and decreases that make it appear as though more than one color of yarn is in play per row. And there are no unsightly loops on the wrong side of the work! Get your hands on fox paws with this exciting summer workshop. Materials list will be provided with registrant confirmation. Registration is required. Please register online or call 720-865-1206.
