This listing is for a three session Newbie Knitting Class. These Newbie Knitting Classes will be held in person at Bistitchual on Saturday, November 18, 25, and December 2, from 1pm-2:30pm.
So you want to knit, eh? Awesome!!! You probably wanna grab those needles and start making your first masterpiece RIGHT NOW!!! That energy is amazing. Hang onto that. However, we must start with the basics to avoid getting frustrated and overwhelmed right out of the gate.
Newbie Knitting is a Level 1 class for beginners. The goal of this class is to give you the tools and techniques needed to complete a basic project from beginning to end. We’ll start by introducing your hands to the needles and your fingers to the yarn. It can be clunky at first, but you will soon discover a natural rhythm that is uniquely your own.
We will move very slowly as we begin learning new techniques. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time for practising, asking questions and receiving 1 on 1 support from our instructor, Chad Lewis. He will also share helpful tools, tips and resources so you can continue your knitting adventure with confidence.
So let’s do this!!! It’s time to release your inner knitter!!!
(No experience necessary)
Materials: Yarn and needles will be provided. We will use worsted weight yarn and US 11/ 8mm circular needles on a 24" cable (don't worry, we'll teach you what that even means!).
