Learn to Knit: The Basics
Sat 9/25 & 10/2
For the safety of our students and teachers, if you are not fully vaccinated, please let us schedule you a private Zoom class.
Learning to knit is fun, and it's easier than you might think. This class will teach you the basic skills you need to get started, whether you've never knit before, or if you just need a refresher. You'll learn how to set up to knit (cast on), form a knit stitch, form a purl stitch and bind off. Once you learn all this, you'll be able to start a simple project, a pretty wash cloth!
Instructor: Amy Wentley
Skills Learned: Casting on, forming a knit stitch, forming a purl stitch, binding off

Students will receive a 20% discount on beginning knitting supplies.
