Have you marveled at beautiful hand-knit garments, wishing that you could create one? Why not learn this skill and create garments and home decorations yourself?

This class offers an introduction to various techniques as you explore the fundamentals of knitting, including casting on, basic knit and purl stitches, increasing, decreasing, and binding off. Students learn by practice, and may start a knitting project during class.

Time is devoted to learning basic skills as a group, and students have the option of staying an additional half-hour after class to receive individual advice and instruction.

No previous knitting experience is required.

Note: In-person programs are not recorded.
