INTERMEDIATE KNITTING CIRCLE—AGES 18 & UP

For those who can cast on and knit garter stitch, and are ready to build more skills (or have completed the beginner course).  Several projects will be created starting with an “oh so cute” hat that can be made in sizes from children to adults, as well as a seamless project “knitting in the round” on circular needles.  In this comprehensive, step-by-step, fun class, you will learn to read patterns, check gauge, master more difficult stitches (including cables) and more!  Students need to bring in size 10 (longer length preferable) straight needles and one skein (150 yards) of worsted weight yarn of their choice to start.  Other materials needed will be discussed in class.  Students can also bring independent projects for help as well.
