Introduction to Knitting

As an introduction to knitting we will cover casting on and off as well as the only two stitches in knitting: knit and purl. Once comfortable with these new skills we will move onto knitting in the round and shaping techniques with increasing and decreasing stitches. We will also discuss the difference between various fibers and how to choose wisely for each project. With your newly acquired skills you will be able to whip up birthday and holiday gifts for everyone you know as well as special projects for yourself. Instructor: Sarah Guérin
