Learn to Knit 1

Beginner Series - Hand Warmers

Classy and easy hand warmers let you practice the basic stitches, finishing techniques and introduce you to reading a pattern.

You’ll learn: Cast on, bind off, knit and purl, garter stitch, stockinette stitch, ribbing, and mattress-stitch seaming.

You’ll make: A stylish set of fingerless gloves (worked flat), and you’ll have the skills you need to make a scarf to match! No previous experience required.  If you have knit and want a refresher we can modify this pattern to your skill level.

We’ll provide: Instruction, pattern, and the supplies to complete the project.  Size 7 knitting needles and worsted weight yarn are available for purchase at the studio. (not included in the instruction fee.)
Minimum of 4 students per class. $45 (2 -session workshop).
