Block #1 Knit and Purl

Want to learn how to knit?  We have the best series of beginner knitting classes.  Using Michele Hunter’s book, Building Blocks, well cover everything from the simplest most basic knit and purl stitches to more complex textures.
In Our first class, we’ll cover the following:

• The properties of various yarns and how to choose the yarn you want for your squares

• How to choose needles appropriate for your yarn

• How to tell a knit from a purl

• Stitch mount


Block #2 Charts• How to find your place in your pattern and in your knitting

• How to avoid accidental yarn overs or short rows

• Pattern reading

• Chart reading

• How to read your knitting



Other topics will probably come up, and we’ll answer questions as they arise.

If you have never knit before, please arrive a half hour early so we can establish the basic skills of casting on and forming the knit and purl stitches.

We’re really looking forward to seeing you
