Our first class this February is a Learn-to-Knit Class. It will take place on Mondays February 13th, 20th, and 27th from 11am to 3:30pm. Class participants will learn to knit by making the Snowflake Cowl which was designed by Tori.
*Yarn needed for the class is 2 skeins of Snowflake from Lang Yarns and US #7 16inch circular needles. Skills covered in the class are the knit stitch, the purl stitch, long-tail cast-on, ribbing, knitting in the round, reading a pattern, reading your knitting, binding-off, weaving in ends, finishing, and a general understanding of yarn and gauge.
Have you ever seen a beautiful cabled sweater or hat and wondered how those stitches are made? Our second class is the Woven Cable Headband Class will answer that question. It will take place on Thursdays February 2nd and 16th. Class participants will knit the Woven Cable Headband by Priscillia Uloho. As they do this they will learn the cable cast-on, knitting left and right cables, seaming a project with a mattress stitch, and finishing techniques. Students should feel comfortable knitting, purling, and reading a simple written pattern before taking this advanced beginner class.
*Supplies needed for the class are 0ne skein (100grams) of worsted weight yarn, size US #8 straight needles, cable needle, and a tapestry needle. We recommend Berroco Ultra Wool, Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Erika Knight Wild Wool, Malabrigo Rios, or Three Irish Girls Springvale Worsted.
Our third class is perfectly timed for this month, the February Hat class will take place on Saturdays February 11th, 18th, and 25th. Class participants will knit the February Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborne. Students will learn the provisional cast-on, reading charts, creating a folded brim, and slipped stitches. If time permits, the final class will go over how to make a pom-pom. Students should feel comfortable knitting, purling, and reading a simple written pattern before taking this advanced beginner class.
Supplies needed for the class are one skein (100grams) of worsted weight yarn. We recommend Kelbourne Woolens Germantown or Malabrigo Rios. Needles used are size US #5 and #6 16inch circular needles, and size US #6 double pointed needles. A tapestry needle and stitch markers will also be useful.
The Templetop Revisited cowl is a wonderful project for knitters looking to explore two-handed stranded colorwork knitting. The elegant motif is quick to knit up, and the final project can be customized by color and length. In our fourth class, Tori will teach students stranded colorwork, the theory of color dominance, reading a colorwork chart, and finishing techniques. If time permits, students can start on the matching hat. Students should feel comfortable casting-on, working in-the-round, and reading a pattern before taking this class.
*Yarn needed for the class are two or three skeins (depending on how many colors you prefer) of worsted weight yarn. We recommend Primrose Yarn Co. Homestead Worsted, Spincycle Yarns Dreamstate or The Fibre Co. Cumbria. The pattern calls for size US #5 and #7 24inch circular needles. Stitch markers and a tapestry needle will also be useful.
