BEYOND BASICS: BUILDING BLOCKS

So you’ve knit a scarf, or a dish cloth, or perhaps a whole cupboard full. Or maybe you picked up knitting but laid it away for too long to remember. What’s next?

As the holidays rolls in, perhaps it is time to try your hand at new skills: pattern reading, lace, cables, increases, decreases? They can lead to a refresh sense of excitement and a world of new garments for your knitting, and we are launching an easy step-by-step ‘drop-in’ series of skills building that you can do at your own pace. And over the course of the series you also work towards completing a lap blanket extraordinaire!

Work on each 14 inch square per class to learn a new technique and end up with a throw blanket to boot!
