If you are a new knitter wanting to venture beyond knitting scarves and blankets, this is the class for you! 

In this class, we’ll go beyond the basics of flat knitting to introduce you to knitting in the round by making a basic beanie that can be knit in an afternoon. You will learn how to work with both circular and double-pointed needles, how to join a piece of knitting to work in the round, how to work increases and decreases, and how to read knitting patterns. 

With the skills learned in this class, you will be able to expand the kinds of projects you can knit to include hats, mittens, cowls and more!
