Beginning Knitting



Learn all the essential skills to begin knitting! You will learn to master the basic stitches, knit and purl, as well as how to begin a project (casting on) and finish (binding off). We will work on two projects during the class – a simple potholder and a scarf. This will give you the foundation you need to take off with an enjoyable and relaxing new hobby. Discover the satisfaction of creating something beautiful and functional with just your hands, a ball of yarn, and a pair of needles.
