    Knit 101 - Learn to Knit 

    Level: Absolute Beginner

    Instructor: Tara

    Note: This is a two time class, we will meet a second time one week after the first class at the same time of day.

    Are you interested in learning how to knit, or do you need a refresher on skills you have forgotten? This is the class for you!

    We will begin with the skills of casting on and learning the knit stitch, to get started with a first project. The goal is for students to finish this project before meeting the following week when we will learn how to bind off the project, any necessary seaming, and weaving in of ends. When the first project is complete students can start a second project and choose to incorporate purl stitches or knitting in the round to add new skills, or continue to reinforce the same skills of their first project as time permits.
