Product Details

In this class you will learn the basics of knitting which includes casting on, knitting, purling, casting off, weaving in your ends, and finishing. This is the perfect class if you have never knitted, or if it has been years since you last picked up needles and you just need a refresher! You will be getting started on a scarf called the Easy Mistake Stitch Scarf. Consisting of knits and purls, the mistake rib stitch is a great beginner stitch. Super easy to remember, the stitch pattern is just a one row repeat, perfect for enjoyable knitting that you don't have to think much about. The mistake rib stitch produces a lofty, squishy fabric and though it may look complicated, it’s surprisingly easy to knit!

This class will meet on two different days, with time in between to practice what you've learned.

Two skeins of Snuggle, an alpaca blend yarn, are needed for the scarf and are included in the fee for the class. Lots of pretty colors to choose from! Click the link to see larger yarn color images, then select the color of your choice when checking out. Keep in mind that stitches are easier to see with lighter colored yarns.

You will need to bring Size US 11 – 8.0 mm Knitting Needles. Bamboo or wood needles are great choices for beginners. Knitting stitches don't slide off the needles as easily, and they are very comfortable to work with. You will also need a large eye yarn needle for weaving in ends.

Nice to have, but not necessary for class is the Knitter's Pocket Guide. It is a laminated handy reference guide to needles, yarns, and stitching techniques -- including helpful hints on joining new yarn, changing colors in the middle of a row, picking up dropped stitches, ripping back, and more! There is an option to purchase this guide, if you wish.

If you would like to add knitting and yarn needles to your class registration, or the Knitter's Pocket Guide, click that option when checking out.

Time Needed: 2 Hours on Two Days
