Updated: Jan 14
On Saturday, January 9th - my Advanced Selbuvotter Course will launch.
I wanted to share the course outline with you, in advance.
In this way, you have an idea of the content we will explore together during this course.
The course instruction will begin on February 6th and run for 8 to 10, but possibly 12 weeks.
I do not want to set an exact end time, so that we have plenty of time to explore the course content that I have planned.
The registration fee is $58 US dollars.
In the weeks prior to the start of the course, I will introduce you to the pattern I will knit to demonstrate within the course and the pattern guidelines. You will have the option to follow along with the course pattern or choose your own pattern within these guidelines.
We will have approximately 3 to 4 weeks now to decide on our patterns and organize our materials.
