Knitting Basics 103 - Small Circumference Knitting; 3/2 & 3/9

In this class we will explore multiple methods of knitting smaller items in the round. You may choose to knit either a pair of fingerless gloves or legwarmers. We will practice knitting in the round using the “magic loop” method, as well as with DPNs (double pointed needles). You will also have the opportunity to try two alternate methods, although we will not go into those in depth. This class is crucial if you want to knit socks, mittens, or seamless sweater sleeves in the future.

Pressed Flowers Shawl Class; 3/6, 3/13, & 3/27

Spring is on the way! Work up this lovely mosaic shawl from designer Amy Christoffers. Learn how to knit a triangular shawl, and how to knit off a chart. We'll be using Making Tracks for our contrast color for a gorgeous color change throughout the shawl. Pair it with a solid color (like Kelbourne Woolens - Scout) for that wow factor.

Basic Sock Class; 3/17 & 3/24

Learn to knit a basic sock cuff down, with a heel flap and gusset. In this class, we'll use a DK weight yarn so you can practice the basic construction and make a pair of thick and cozy socks. This is one of the most common sock constructions, so after completing this class you'll have the basic skills to explore countless sock patterns.

Knitting Basics 102 - Knitting in the Round; 4/6 & 4/13

Socks Skills: Toe Up/ Fleegle Heel Class; 4/13 & 4/27

Have you knit basic socks before but would like to try a new construction method? In this class we will learn to knit toe up socks, with a seamless cast on and a fleegle heel. The fleegle heel fits many feet much better than a standard heel flap and gusset. Knitting your socks toe up gives you the opportunity to try on and customize the fit as you go, and if you split your skein into two equal balls, you can just keep knitting until you run out of yarn, with no worries of running out before you finish the toe.

Use up your scrappy yarn, or make a master color plan for your layout. This class will be a lot of fun for color planning & layout, and there will be a wealth of information on how to go about stranding this piece, including intarsia twists and catching floats.
