Soul Warmer

April 5, 12, & 19 [in progress]
5-7 pm
$30 + materials

The Soul Warmer cowl combines lace sections with stripes and textured stitches for a sampler piece that is fun to knit, and makes perfect use of mini skein sets.

You should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. The ability to identify your stitches is helpful, but prior experience knitting lace is not required. There will be homework knitting between sessions.

Honey Pie

April 14, 21, & May 5 [full]
5-7 pm
$30 + materials

Honey Pie is a dress sized from newborn to little girls’ size 6. Learn how to work a folded picot hem, box pleats, and attached i-cord. When working the narrow straps, you will work a simple cable, and the option to “knit backwards” will be presented.

You should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. There will be homework knitting between sessions so that we can focus class time on the unique aspects of the construction.

Project Circle

April 28 (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.

Beginner’s Fair Isle Cap

May 10, 17, & 24
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!

    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!
