at The Knitting Garage
I have come up with a few fun projects for both the beginner knitter and for those who want to do something a little more advanced .
These classes are held twice: First on Wednesday morning 11am to 1pm and then on the following Saturday from 10am to 12noon (dates are indicated). The cost of $40 per class includes the pattern and any additional help to finish the project. Prior sign-up is necessary for the class during the week on Wednesday and recommended for the Saturday classes, but additional walk-ins are welcome Saturdays with a maximum number of four students per class.
May 6th and 9th Lavalette (for the Beginner Lace Knitter)
This shawl is knitted in Fingering weight yarn on US#7 needles.
You will learn how to cast on, the knit stitch and the purl stitch and how to seam.
The choice is yours which project you want to start with. The mitts are small and simple to make; the poncho will take you considerably longer.
For the Mitts you will need heavy worsted yarn and US# 7 needles.
For the Poncho you will need DK weight yarn and US# 6 needles (we have a beautiful store sample of this pattern).
May 20th and 23rd Kitty (PART 1)(for the Beginner Knitter)
This is a cute and popular pattern. We have a store sample of this cardigan in pink.
You will need Fingering weight yarn and US#5 needles.
May 27th and 30th Kitty (Part 2)(For the Beginner Knitter)
You do not need to take both classes for “Kitty”, but you will get a 20% discount if you do.
As always do check out Julie’s classes at The Knitting Garage, too.
