|Article number:||Intro To Knitting-May 12th-Sun at 11am|
Our goal is to help you learn, and our intros give you a solid foundation in the fiber arts. Our Knitting intros are taught by experienced teachers, and we only use the best consciously-sourced tools and materials. We promise to be by your side as you navigate through these early stages. We encourage you to drop by for 'touch-ups' and join us for the Sunday Social. We promise to take you from zero to 'I need more yarn in my stash' in less than three hours.
What you'll need:
- 1-2 balls of worsted weight yarn
- 1 set of straight or circular needles, appropriate in size for your yarn – we recommend US size 8 or 9, we can help you in store to pick out the right materials for you.
What you'll learn:
- Cast-on, bind-off
- Knit, purl
- Choosing your yarn
- Choosing your pattern
- Tools & tips
This class will take you from zero to knitter in three hours. You will learn the basics of how to knit and purl, how to begin your work, and how to neatly finish it off. We encourage you to aim to make a simple scarf pattern, but if you feel confident enough, we can show you how to make a cowl by working in the round with circular needles. We will talk about the types of yarn and how to choose them, as well as how to pick your patterns. Finally, we'll show you some tools and give you tips on where to use them as you begin your adventures with yarn.
