Learn to knit in this fun & comprehensive class for beginners. In this class you can get started on making an easy scarf or hat, or just practice on a little swatch!

We have many different yarns that are great for beginners. Come a bit early to class to get our advice on which ones are easy and how much you’ll need for your project.

In class we’ll go over how to cast on, or start your knitting, and the knit stitch. I’ll also give demos on binding off, seaming, and weaving in your ends. If you’re practicing on a swatch you can practice all these techniques in class.

If you’re starting a project you’ll take the project home to finish before binding off, seaming, or weaving in ends, but I offer help at the counter in the shop whenever you’re ready for the next step, as well as a complimentary help session to get help finishing your project at any of my Open Studio sessions.

Project: a scarf or hat

What you will learn: the long tail cast on, the knit stitch, binding off, seaming, and weaving in ends.

Required Experience: None! You don't need any knitting experience to take this class. Must be 9 years or older.

Required Yarn: you can knit a scarf in any worsted weight (also called medium weight, or noted as weight 4), bulky weight (weight 5), or super bulky weight (weight 6) yarn. The amount you will need will vary depending on the yarn weight you choose and the size you want your scarf to be (we can give you estimates in the shop!) If you want to make a hat you’ll need at least 200 yards of worsted weight yarn. 

Required Tools: if you’re making a scarf, the needle size will vary based on the yarn you choose: anything between US 8 (5 mm) and US 19 (15 mm). If you’re making a hat you’ll need US 8 (5 mm) needles. We recommend using wooden needles when you’re learning, the metal ones can be heavy (if they’re vintage) and slippery.

Sliding Scale: This class is offered on a sliding scale. Determining monetary value under capitalism while being anti-capitalist is complicated! You can refer to the chart below that offers suggestions for each income bracket, but please pay whatever amount feels right to you. I want as many people to have access to the knowledge I'm sharing as possible!
