Class Description: 

Learn to knit in this introductory class designed for beginners. We will focus on the foundation of it all, the knit stitch, and use this building block to make a pair of simple fingerless mitts. We will also cover holding your needles and yarn, reading a basic knitting pattern, casting on and binding off your project, and some simple finishing skills. This class will meet for two 2-hour sessions, with homework in between.  

 

Supply list for class: 

  • 100 yards of worsted weight yarn
    • Select a yarn that has a smooth finish, nothing too fuzzy, and avoid very dark colors like black or navy blue
  • One 24” US size 7 circular needle (if you’re purchasing needles for the class, get these ones)
    • If you already own any of the following, they may be used instead:
