Intro to Knitting
February 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$40 – $55
If you’ve never picked up needles before, this is the class for you. In this class, master knitter Melissa Kelenske will teach students to cast on, knit and bind off – -the basic foundation for starting a first project. Students will cast on and knit a simple but cozy cowl in the round. Much of knitting is muscle memory — practicing the same repetitive motions over and over; this cowl is a great way to hone your new knitting skills.
1.) Approximately 200 yards of worsted weight yarn, preferably a wool blend (no cotton, acrylic).
2.) One 16-inch circular needle in US 7, 8 or 9
3.) One stitch marker
