Learn to knit! Knitting warm, comfortable, attractive clothing is calming to the mind and soothing to the spirit (and fun). This class covers needles, yarns and basic stitches with lots of time to practice, ask questions and discover the joy of this ancient craft. We will also make a hat!

by student.) STRAIGHT NEEDLES AND SAMPLER YARN PROVIDED.

CIRCULARITY

Knitting in the round…what’s it all about? Getting comfortable with double pointed needles will be our first goal. We’ll knit some cuffs. Then we’ll explore “magic loop”, working on two needles and other circular needle tricks. Bring your adventurous spirit.

THE SWEATER CLASS

Knit a sweater that fits, feels wonderful and looks great!

You must stop by and select your pattern and yarn at least ONE WEEK before the start of class. BEGINNING KNITTING CLASS OR DEMONSTRATED ABILITY WITH TEACHER APPROVAL REQUIRED.

BRIOCHE HAT
3 Sessions $65

These slipper socks will find a way into a project bag. A great way to use a special ball of sock yarn (about 200 yards), it’s all about clever construction. We will start with the Churchmouse pattern then explore a toe-up version, including short row toe and other interesting techniques and cuff possibilities. They make a great gift after you have enough pairs for yourself. Churchmouse pattern included. BEGINNING KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED.

SIDE TO SIDE BABY SWEATER

Roxana Bartlett, instructor
Knit a cute unisex baby sweater from cuff to cuff. This will be a good introduction to the unique qualities of knitting sweaters “sideways”! BEGINNING KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED.

Sunday, August 20, 1–3pm
Roxana Bartlett, instructor
Are you still uncertain about the proper way to pick up a dropped stitch? Still not sure about the proper stitch mount? Have you never learned to “un-knit” in both directions? Discover holes and don’t know how they got there? This is the class for you! We will spend two hours concentrating on the most common mistakes that happen in knitting and
the most efficient ways to fix them.

SWEATER DOCTOR IS IN
