Have you completed a beginner knitting class and enjoy participating in our learning community? Have you been knitting for a while and want to expand your skills? This class is for you. Using the Building Blocks book by Michelle Hunter, you will practice beginner-to-intermediate knitting techniques on twelve unique squares, which can be combined into a lap blanket.

We suggest you take the Knitting Refresher Workshop before enrolling in Set A or B. You may enroll for the beginning of set A or set B after completing the Knitting Refresher. 

Set A Class Description
During set A—offered September, November, February, and April—you will learn how to knit one or two squares every week.

✩ Week one: Yarn Over and Bobbles (square 3)

✩ Week two: Cables, Slip Stitch (squares 5 & 8)

✩ Week three: Left Twist, SSK (squares 9 & 10)

Set B Class Description
You may enroll for the beginning of set A or set B. During set B—offered October, January, March, and May—you will learn how to knit one or two squares every week.

✩ Week four: Simple Decreases (square 4)

✩ Week five: Right Twist, Mock Cables (squares 6 & 7)

During each class, practice your new stitches on a swatch before you continue on your next square. We suggest you begin a swatch plus the bottom border for each square covered in that class. You might decide to bring as many as three separate knit pieces, with three balls of yarn, if we are working two squares in a class. Otherwise, you could practice and unravel with a single ball of yarn. See below for a hint about holding stitches.

DECEMBER DATES: Tuesdays, December 3, 10 & 17, 6-8pm
