Knitting Fundamentals

February 4, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until February 26, 2023


February 4, 11, 18, & 25 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm

This class offers novice knitters a weekly opportunity to learn a new craft or brush up on a skill they may have set aside  – it’s an open forum for beginner and intermediate knitters to develop and refine their skills. Students will learn the fundamentals of knitting from needle composition, yarn fiber content, basic steps, and pattern reading. This class will also cover the basics of “sheep to shawl” (from creation of yarn to finished project). While we will not be carding, spinning, or dyeing our own yarn, students will gain an understanding of how fibers are sourced and complete a project of their choosing. Knitting is all around us! All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
