Learn new skills as you knit a beautiful afghan one square at a time!
It’s a new year! Why not begin the year with learning all those knitting “ins” and “outs” you’ve been wanting to learn!
We will meet on Tuesdays from 4 to 6 pm and each week will isolate a new skill that will add to your knitting repertoire of skills. Over the course of 14 weeks we will knit 12 blocks to create a beautiful afghan, and then all those finishing techniques on week 14!
When you’re done, you can say, “Yes, I did knit that!”
During the course, of this class you will learn the following skills:
- Pattern Reading
- Increases and decreases
- Yarn over and bobbles
