LAST ONE UNTIL FALL:Sun 4/8, Knitting for Newbies: Snood Project with We Are Knitters full $75 retail value kit, 12-5PM

TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT WORKSHOPPGH.COM, PLEASE SEE OUR SITE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

In this one day class, Instructor Jessica from Wit & Purl teaches you the basics of knitting and gets you started on creating stitches using those big knitting needles! No previous knitting experience required! Jessica will teach you skills including: reading and understanding a pattern, casting on/off, knitting (duh…), purling, increasing and decreasing stitches, ribbing, finishing work with blocking, and sewing with a yarn needle. The first part of class will include demonstration and instruction on these knitting skills, followed by a practice knitting project. You will have ample time to ask questions, troubleshoot, and perfect your practice. You will leave class with your knitting project, a set of wooden knitting needles, a yarn needle to finish your pieces, and the skills to read and follow simple knitting patterns in order to inspire and complete this and future knitting projects! Also, please note, you won’t finish this project in class, so be prepared to squeeze in some quality couch time and Netflix binging while you knit yourself to the end of this one!

* 2 YARN BALLS OF 100% PERUVIAN THE WOOL (CHUNKY WOOL) 200 GR.
