Learn the very basics and knit a chic headband perfect for our Toronto winters. We'll be working with big needles and a super chunky Merino wool, so you'll see your progress quickly in large, satisfying stitches. This course would be great for someone who's never held a set of needles, a beginner, or someone who is looking to refresh what they learned back in Home Ec. We'll go over Englishstyle casting on, binding off, and the knit stitch, and you'll get a hand-illustrated Knitting 101 guide to take home to help you practice your new skills. The course also includes a pair of bamboo knitting needles, an original headband pattern, and a ball of Merino wool large enough to complete your headband.
All materials included.
Class size limited to 9 students.
