Organized group lessons meet once a week for six weeks.   These lessons are project-based, meaning that you learn to knit and end up with  finished products.  If you are a not-yet-knitter or a beginner, these are the classes for you!

During the first three weeks, you will make a headband with bow and wash cloth/dish cloth(s).   You will learn basic skills:  pattern reading, cast-on, knit, purl, increase, decrease and bind off.  Then we continue with basic skills, adding more pattern reading and practice to make a lovely winter hat with pom poms or tassels!

The cost of the six-week session is $40, payable at the first lesson (non-refundable).  Services are taxable in NYS, so sales tax must be paid on the class fee.  To begin, you will need size 10 knitting needles and a ball of bulky weight yarn, which can be purchased at the shop.
