BUILDING BLOCKS

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:

  • Gauge
  • Pattern Reading
  • Increases and decreases
  • Charts
  • Yarn over and bobbles
  • Left and right twists
  • Cables
  • SSK and Make One
  • Binding Off
  • Finishing your afghan – blocking, seaming, weaving in ends
