What It's All About

Want to learn the basics of knitting but short on time? Take this short workshop and master the basics: casting on, the knit and purl stitches and binding off. We'll explain and demonstrate the two most common styles of "throwing" and "picking". No experience is required; this is a great class for absolute beginners. We've included a "get started" kit in your registration fee, so you don't have to shop for materials – you'll get a nice set of lightweight, bamboo knitting needles, a good yarn and the best resource booklet for new knitters. Have fun and get the skills you need to start knitting on your first project right away.

Please bring:

Nothing! We've put together a great little "knit kit" just for you and we'll give it to you at the first class.

Includes:

  • 4 hours of instruction over two weeks in a small group setting
  • The best resource for new knitters: The Churchmouse Classroom Learn to Knit Companion
  • A project bag with all the items you need for a great start: a good yarn, knitting needles, notions
  • A $15 gift certificate to use in picking out your first project
  • A special discount card for new knitters
