Learn to Knit: Knitting 102
If you've ever wanted to learn to knit, the best time to start is now! If you have taken Knitting 101 with us, this is the next step in your knitting career. Once you know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, this class will build upon those skills and we will learn to knit a hat! You will learn to read a basic pattern, how to knit in the round, use stitch markers, how to do simple decreases, and use double pointed needles! It sounds like a lot, but broken down into two classes, we promise it is manageable. The goal of this class is to knit a squishy, bulky hat, and build on the basic principles you learned in Knitting 101.
We have paired with the amazing Productivity Parlour for Artful Living to offer a wonderful classroom space in Tacoma, Washington. They are located at 753 St Helens Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402.
This is a two part class held on Saturday February 22nd from 11am-1pm, and again the following Saturday, February 29th from 11am-1pm.
We will have Knitting 102 kits for sale starting December 1st, and available for purchase at the start of class. Please try to be there about ten minutes early if you need to purchase a kit, so we can start on time. You are encouraged to bring a notepad and pencil for taking notes, if you find that sort of thing helpful.
Otherwise, you will require the following:
- One skein super bulky yarn in superwash wool or a wool blend. Our pattern was designed to use Rainier, but any yarn that calls for a size US 13 needle will do.
- A 16" US 13 needle. We recommend bamboo or wood for beginners.
- Double pointed size US 13 needles.
- Bent Tip tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
- 8 stitch markers large enough to fit your needles.
- Project bag to hold it all together (Recommended but not required)
- Scissors or snips (Recommended but not required)
