Knitting 101: Mitts

Instructor: Amy Keefer

Have you ever wanted to knit your very own cozy scarf, hat, or mittens? This quick and painless class will give you a taste of what knitting is all about. Spend the afternoon with us, sipping tea, and make your first pair of fingerless mitts.

About the yarn used in this class: Puffin is a plump, chunky, single-ply yarn spun from sturdy American wool fleece. Its felted texture knits up into garments with a soft halo and a broken-in feel. Puffin is great for quick accessories or cozy, wear-all-the-time sweaters.

In this class you will learn how to: knit, cast-on and bind-off, finish your knitting (seaming), read a knitting pattern

Required Skills: None! This class is for the absolute beginner.
