Beginning Knitting

Have you ever wanted to learn to knit? This two-session class is your opportunity.
During the first class you will learn the knitted cast on as well as the knit stitch. You will have the skills necessary to knit a dishcloth for your kitchen.
You will also learn about needle sizes and their uses. Learning to read the label on the skein of yarn will give you guidance on matching needles with weights of yarn.
The use of stitch markers will aid in keeping track of your stitches.
During the second class you will learn how to bind off your work and weave in stitches to complete your dishcloth. The other stitch, purl, will be taught.
With the combination of knits and purls you can experiment with different looks for another dishcloth.
The importance of various knit websites, such as Raverly, will be touched on.

You can bring size 7 needles and 100% cotton yarn (such as Sugar 'n Creme) if you have them, otherwise all supplies are available at Quilt Passions.
Cost: $ 10.00
