CLASSES Learn to knit classes are taught to very small groups or on an individual basis all year long. Instruction is offered when the shop is less busy and you have time to practice what is being taught. When you have graduated you will know how to cast on, knit and purl and bind off. The cost of this "class" is $25.
CLASSES FOR MAY
Find your Fade Shawl Class
Have you seen the Find Your Fade Shawl yet? This pattern is all over Ravelry. The knitting is straight forward, alternating with garter stitch and simple lace. What makes the shawl unique and fun is the shaping and the use of color.
Find Your Fade
We will be holding the class twice: on Wednesday May 3 at 6 pm and on Saturday May 6 at noon. The class is $10 including the pattern, or, $5 if you have already purchased the pattern. Knit! is registered with Ravelry to sell patterns. The pattern is written for 7 colors of fingering weight yarn, each section requiring different yardage. You may use less than seven colors, or more. We'll help you work that out. For inspiration check out the "Finished Objects Thread" in the designer's Ravelry Board.
After the class we'll enjoy a find your fade knit along. It will be fun to see how the shawls vary.
