Skills required: none.

In this class you will learn how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off.  You will learn how to choose the right yarns and needles; read gauge; and other information that is necessary to get started knitting.  At the end of the four weeks, you will have the skills necessary to complete a project (a scarf).  Time permitting, we will also cover decreases, increases, and have a look at knitting in the round.

Next Step: Simple Hat
Tuesdays 6:30 – 8:30 PM: April 22 and 29th
Cost: $50
Skills required: you must know how to knit and purl
Materials*: Students must print out a copy of the pattern to bring to class.  The pattern for this hat is available here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hats-from-the-heart.  You will also need 16” circular US 8, and about 200 yards of worsted weight yarn.

This class is designed as the next step for those of you who are looking at how to get beyond the square.  If you’ve never knit in the round before, come take this class, and you will lose all fear in the face of a circular needle.

    Hello,

    For the ‘first pair of knitted mittens’ class is it one of the 3 Wednesdays in March or all 3 Wednesdays?

    Thanks for your help!

    Jennifer

      Hi Jennifer, the class is both: the 12th and the 26th. We normally run them consecutively, but were unable to do that this month.
