Project Classes - Knitting

 

CC Beanie - Learn how to make a hat 'in the round' using circular and double point needles! This class is held in 2 - 1.5 hr sessions (total of 3 hrs) for a cost of $40 plus supplies. We will learn to cast on using the German Twisted Cast On method and complete as much as we can in Class 1. There is homework! Class 2 starts with the crown decreases so you will will need to complete your hat up to that point at home before the 2nd class!  The yarn used for this class is a 100% Chunky Merino Wool that is SO soft and squishy. AND you can put it in the washer and dryer!!! The cost is an additional $12.00 (this reflects a 25% discount). When you call to register for your class, I will send you a list of colors to choose from so we can wind the skein into a cake before the start of the first class. You will also need a size 10 - 16 in circular needle as well as a set of size 10 double point needles. You may bring your own or purchase from me prior to class.  Pom poms are optional and may be purchased separately. NOTE: THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER CLASS! Speed is not required however you need to be proficient at knits and purls to be successful in this class.

Class Policies:

  • Payment is due for the ENTIRE class at the start of the first class (for multiple class sessions). In the event that you have to miss a class I will gladly reschedule or issue store credit. Refunds will only be given if I have to cancel the class.
