Learn to Knit - Washcloth Class
Learn the basics of knitting!
I knit continental, so that is what I teach. That means I hold the yarn in my left hand and "pick" the yarn rather than holding yarn in my right hand and "throwing". I can demonstrate "throwing" the yarn English style, but when I am knitting, it will be continental.
Masks are required for in-person meetings.
WASHCLOTH - Learn holding yarn and needles, cast on, knit, purl, bind off, reading a pattern, and weaving ends. During this first class you will make a washcloth. Class includes 2 actual lesson meetings: one to start and one to finish the item. You will be given materials to take home for additional washcloths, including pattern.
