Hat Class

This is a 3 session class, and here’s what you will learn: how to begin a project on circular needles, knit in
the round, make textured stitch patterns with cables and knit & purl stitches, follow a pattern that is written
charted, use increase & decrease stitches & double pointed needles to shape the crown, & how to resize
and work from a one-size hat pattern.

You will be able to purchase all supplies with 10% discount.

It’s only necessary for you to be able to knit and purl.  All other skills will be taught.  This is a
super “next step” project for a new knitter.  It’s also great for anyone wanting to learn
techniques for circular knitting, cables, using double point needles,
and reading/following a pattern.
