2/22 and 3/1, (2 CLASSES) Knitting Bootcamp For Beginners: All Day Knitting Camp & Blanket Project with We Are Knitters full $110- kit, 6:30-9:30pm both nights.
In this two day knitting bootcamp, 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. Since this class is over 2 weeknights, you will have homework and 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!
We Are Knitters — Nick Blanket Project: For this class, your main project will be the Nick Blanket from We Are Knitters (pictured above). This blanket measures 26" by 52.5". As part of this class, you will receive a new We Are Knitters knitting kit! Each kit includes two 15mm knitting needles, four skeins of exceptional 100% Peruvian wool (ohhhhh… ahhhhh…), a sewing needle, and blanket pattern.
