Time: Every Thursday from 5:30-7pm
Level: Absolute Beginner
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 of 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.
