Learn to Knit: Perfect Pillow Knit Along (8-session class)

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Interested in learning to knit? Looking to hone or expand your basic knitting skills? Join the library for our Perfect Pillow Knit Along starting January 9th in the Raya Stern Trustees Room. A seasoned knitter on staff will be guiding individuals through the process of making a cozy knit pillow cover, for a festive beginner project. Learn how to decorate your home with beautiful, hand stitched crafts! Free and open to adults, recommended for ages 18+.

NOTE: By registering for this event, you are registering for eight (8) sessions of this class. The class will meet on the following Thursdays: 1/9, 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6, 2/13, 2/20, 2/27.

This class is designed for beginners who have never cast on before, or beginner to intermediate knitters who are looking to expand their skills with new stitch patterns or colorblocking. You will learn many skills including (but not limited to) casting on, knitting, purling, yarn overs, proper seaming, and more. The course takes place over 8 weeks.

Materials are not included and must be sourced before the start of the first class session.

Upon registration, a materials list and pattern selection will be sent to the email on file. Materials lists are designed to be a total of $25 dollars or less. Please plan to bring all materials to class sessions. Happy stitching!

P.S. Are you already an avid knitter and want a place to come stitch and socialize? We want to hear from you! Feel free to drop into the Raya Stern Trustees Room during workshop times to knit and build community. Registration for experienced, drop-in knitters is not required.
