Knitting for Beginners: Making a Scarf for the Holidays
2-Session Evening Workshop
Monday, November 4 and 18, 2019 – 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Have you marveled at beautiful hand-knit garments, wishing that you could create one? Why not learn this skill and create a scarf for yourself or to give as a holiday gift?
The instructor teaches the fundamentals of knitting, including casting on, basic knit and purl stitches, increasing, decreasing, and binding off. Students learn by practice, and knit a scarf during and between classes.
No previous knitting experience is required. Bring to the first class a set of size-8 knitting needles and a light-colored skein of worsted-weight yarn.
