This workshop is for those who have never picked up knitting needles and for those who have some experience and want to learn a new stitch or two!
We will start with the basics and move on to knitting dishcloths as our class project: utilizing various pattern options depending on your skill level.
Not interested in dishcloths? Bring a project you are working on along with a pattern and I will help get you started or give you tips to help your project work go smoother.
By the end of this workshop we will have you ready to make whatever knitted project your heart desires.
- Size 7 needles (straight or circular)
- 1 to 2 skeins of any cotton worsted weight yarn (for dishcloths I recommend Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream yarns)
