Learn to knit with Kristy Glass is a fun filled, 3 part class designed to get you on your needles and finishing your first project. Students will create a rolled brim hat and learn 3 weeks worth of fantastic tips, tricks and support. No prior experience needed. Learn a NEW craft with Kristy.
Week 1 is a 2 hour class: What is knitting? Teach me about wool, test different yarns, learn the knit stitch and how to cast on. Students should continue to work at home or come into the shop to continue their project as directed.
Week 2 is a 1 hour class where we will review different cast on techniques, learn about the different yarn weights and fibers and how they are used. Students will also learn how to decrease for the top of their hat.
Week 3 is a 1 hour session that wraps up and reviews more techniques. Students will also learn cool tricks like embellishing their knitting with embroidery, gemstones, and pompoms. A quick Ravelry.com class will be included if time permits. let's start our next project!
