In this class we will learn how to incorporate all those leftovers or mini-skeins into a cohesive colorful cowl using the helix way of knitting. This cowl is a great way of using every last scrap of a favorite yarn, producing a one of a kind enviable project starting with a provisional cast on, knitting a tube, then grafting the ends together. Two sessions for this cowl, one month apart. The first for getting started with the technique and the second to graft the tube together.
