LEARN TO KNIT SERIES
We developed our Learn to Knit Series to give you a solid foundation of knitting skills. Each class builds off the last. You’ll enter Knit 1 with no knitting experience and leave Knit 3 as an advanced beginner knitter. You’ll learn by making – a scarf, a hat, and a sock or a fingerless mitt – pieces you can wear right away!
The series was designed for people who’ve never knit before, but it makes a great refresher too!
KNIT 1: A NECKWARMER
$90 – three sessions & materials.
Required experience: none.
Sundays, January 3, 10, and 17 from 11am-12:30pm

Wednesdays, March 9, 16, and 23 from 6-7:30pm
Welcome to the world of hand knitting! You’ll learn to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off with straight needles. After a working with practice yarn, you’ll start your neckwarmer, picking up tips and tricks along the way as your skills improve.
Knitting with straight needles – or knitting flat – will enable you to knit scarves, wraps, blankets – even sweater pieces.
All materials are included in the cost of this class.

In Knit 2, you’ll learn to cast on to circular needles, to join in the round, to switch to double pointed needles, and to make decreases while you knit your hat. Once you’re comfortable with knitting in the round, you can make a variety of hats, cowls, and infinity scarves.
