Time: Usually every 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 5:30-7pm.
Get started on the path to creating your own treasured handknits! Whether you’ve never picked up needles before or you’ve dabbled in the past and are in need of a refresher, this class will give you a solid foundation in the fundamentals of knitting. We’ll cover topics including casting on & binding off, the knit and the purl stitch, reading a simple pattern, and unknitting and picking up dropped stitches so you’re able to fix mistakes when they happen (and they happen to the best of us). There will also be a short discussion on gauge so your project will fit right.
Materials: One skein of DK or worsted weight yarn in a color you love, and a 24-inch circular needle of appropriate size for your yarn. Fancywork staff is happy to help you choose the right yarn and needles for your class.
