Beginner’s Fair Isle Cap FULL

May 10, 17, & 24
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7 pm
$30 + materials

Janine Bajus is an inspiring Fair Isle knitter, and she designed this hat pattern to introduce knitters to traditional stranded knitting.  We will learn the provisional crochet cast on (in order to begin the colorwork quickly), color dominance in stranded knitting, two-handed two-color knitting, and a tubular ribbed cast-off.

Prerequisites: you should know how to cast on, knit, and purl. A curious and patient attitude will help when working through the challenge of learning to work with both hands simultaneously!

Project Circle

May 26 (and last Friday of every month)
5-7 pm
no charge

Project Circle will focus on larger, long term projects like afghans. If you need inspiration, check out these suggested patterns.

Cable Sampler Cowl

May 31 & June 7
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7 pm
$20 + materials

Cables look like magic, but a basic cable is well within the reach of an adventurous beginning knitter. In this class, we will look at how changing the interval of the twist dramatically alters the look of a cable. Cabled patterns are frequently presented in chart form, so we will cover some chart-reading basics, as well as strategies for keeping track of the varying repeats. In the second session, we will deliberately make a mistake–so we can learn how to fix it without ripping out rows and rows of knitting.

Prerequisites: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. Curiosity and patience are additional skills you will find helpful!

Uh-Oh

June 17
Instructor: Sandy Buzzelli
10 am – 2 pm
$40

Have you experienced that moment of dread and disappointment when something goes wrong in your knitting? Do you feel nervous as you knit because you fear making a mistake?

You’ll become a more confident and relaxed knitter if you know how to handle those inevitable mis-knits. In this class, we’ll learn how stitches are formed, how to unknit and unpurl, how to unravel multiple rows and get our work back onto the needles, how to pick up dropped stitches, and much more!

Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.

    I’d like to sign up for the Continental Knitting class on Fri. 9/23/16. Is there still a seat available? What do I need to bring

    Hi Lois–
    Yes, space available. All you need is some medium-weight yarn and needles to knit with! Preferably light-colored. Sorry I didn’t see this until this afternoon!
