I had gone to the Stitches United conference in Hartford, CT in March and bought the yarn and pattern to make the Victorian Raffia scarf by Kieran Foley and Alasdair Post-Quinn at The Yarn Guys booth. I totally fell in love with the pattern, but the last time I tried to do a stranded pattern it came out bunchy. I knew I wasn't using the right techniques, so in order to do the scarf I needed to take this stranded knitting class and the double knitting class by Alasdair Post-Quinn. (I feel like I'm stalking him.) This class totally helped me!!!
