Beginner's Knitting Class Series

With Roseann St. Aubin 

 

Three 90-minute classes with optional 30 minute "sit and knit" after class, $60 dollars total. 

 

  1. The Basics. Tools, choosing yarn. Casting on, knit and pearl stitches, decreasing, increasing, use of straight needles, binding off. We learn by creating a knitted swatch that includes the techniques.  We also learn to knit in the round on circular needles and on double-point needles. We cast on for a color work hat. 

    

  1. Colorwork: We work on our hats, learning to add a color pattern in Fair isle technique. We learn to read charts, learn to decrease in the round. Finishing the hat with I-cord.
