Beginner Knitting- March 19 - 3:00PM-4:00PM
$ 20.00

5 available

This is an informal class for beginner/newer knitters.

You will learn:

  • How to get started by casting on stitches
  • The basic knit stitch
  • How to finish it off (binding off)

At the end you will have small coaster sized square, and you will be able to knit simple scarves, afghans, and washcloths.

Yarn and needles are included in the price of the class.  During class we will talk about what project you would like to do next to apply your new skill, and what materials will be required.

*If this is your second class, please, bring the knitting needles given to you in the previous class and a worsted weight smooth yarn. If you need help choosing yarn we are happy to assist you. 

There is a 10% discount on purchases on the day of class.

Cost: $20

Instructor: Emilie Petty

Emilie Petty learned to knit by teaching herself from a boxed set of book and needles. Once she figured out that knitting smooth yarn was preferable to learn on, knitting became an immediate addiction. Nothing was out of limits for her. She believed that taking on a new project was a chance to learn something new.

Emilie became a part of the Quixotic Fibers Family when, after visiting the shop three days in a row and joking about working, Curtis offered her a job. We haven’t been able to get rid of her since.
