HOW to READ your KNITTING CLASS

Learning how to read your knitting is an important skill to develop as you continue to grow into your craft.  One of the main advantages in learning how to read your work is that you'll be able to make the connection between how your project is constructed and the fabric that grows on your needles in real time.  You'll be able to readily catch and problem-solve mishaps in your work, like a dropped stitch or an off-kilter stitch pattern.  

Using simple knit and purl stitches, along with some decreases and increases, you will be making this beautiful rectangular scarf with pointed ends that is fully reversible.  

Monday's Class will be on January 23rd from 10-12
and
Saturday's Class will be on January 28 from 10-12
Cost $25 for the 2 hours.
