What It's All About

At River City Yarns, we know how cool it is to knit. We also know that it's more fun to take a class on knitting than it is to learn from a family member. You may have an awesome knitter in your family but teaching takes a different kind of patience and skill. We'll provide all the materials so your young knitter gets off to a great start. And, we'll start with a project! In this set of classes, the first project is a hat, knit in the round on a circular needle. Knitting is a portable, creative and calming. It's great for developing better math skills, too (shhh... that's an insider, parents-only-need-to-know secret!)

Skill Level

This workshop is designed for absolute beginners but those who have tried knitting before are welcome, too.

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.


  • 4 hours of instruction over two weeks in a small group setting,
  • A special pattern for knitting a great hat,
  • A project bag with all the items you need for your first project: a good yarn, a circular needle and a wool needle.
