05/27 • KNIT 101: HAT • Intro to Knitting, May 27 (12-2 pm) Monday$30.00
Have you been wanting to learn to knit, but haven't been quite sure of where to start? Or maybe you knit when you were a kid, but haven't picked up needles in a while. This class is the for you! We love welcoming people into the wonderful world of knitting and created this class to do just that. In this easy intro class, you will learn to cast on and the basic knit stitch while making a super cute and soft hat. One skein, one class, one hat! Simple as that. This class is for people 13 years or older.
Once you've done this intro class, then you're ready for our KNIT 102: RIBBED BEANIE class. You'll use the same needles, but knit with different yarn and learn a few new stitches to open up a whole world of knitting!
We have Knit Group every Wednesday from 4 to 6 pm. All are welcome! It's a great time to continue your knitting, get inspired, and connect. We love seeing your progress and helping if you get stuck.
