This will be an online class conducted via Zoom on your computer, tablet or phone. You will receive an instructional email once you register.

This class is for the knitter or crocheter who is not confident about calculating how many stitches to cast on when their gauge is a few stitches different from the pattern gauge. It is meant to be a very gentle review of how to calculate percentages and use them to modify any knit or crochet pattern.

It will also cover how to use your gauge swatch to estimate the amount of yarn you will need.

Cost: $20

Minimum # Students: 3

Instructor: Carla Billingsley

Carla Billingsley rediscovered knitting shortly after her 40th birthday when she fell in love with handpainted and novelty yarns. At first she only made rectangles and triangles: scarves, throws, and shawls. Eventually she worked up the courage to try lace and socks. After learning to turn her first heel she realized that you can learn anything if you set your mind to it, and that learning is really easy if you can take a class with a good teacher. In 2014 she and her husband Curtis moved to Texas and in June 2015 they opened Quixotic Fibers. From the beginning, her vision for the shop was that it is not just a place to buy yarn and fiber, but that it should become a community resource dedicated to the preservation and development of the fiber arts, a place where knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can gather to learn from and to inspire each other.
