Freya's Flowers - Zoom Class with Florence Spurling

This 1.5-hour Zoom class with Florence Spurling will cover all the techniques needed to create the decorative flowers that are used on Florence's Freya Tee.

Students will work on a swatch, starting with the base flower stitch that is knitted using a mix of bobble and lace stitches. Once the base flower is created, we will work through the steps of creating the dimensional petal embellishment which will be sewn down onto the swatch.
