Knit 101 Baby!
This is class for brand new knitters who have brand new people to knit for! Knitting for babies is some of the most fun you can have as a knitter. Knits for babies are small things and inevitably cute, but more to the point small things are quicker to knit so new knitters are gratified by seeing their projects completed more rapidly. In this four week class we will cover all the basic knitting techniques we do in our original Knit 101 class. Students will learn how to get stitches on and off the needle, they will learn a knit from a purl and back again, they will learn how to knit in circles to create three dimensional results, and to follow knitting patterns too! Techniques will be practised on pint sized charmers: a cotton wash cloth, baby leggings, and a baby sized hat. Fast knitters may even make a start on a baby blanket. After the class knitters will have all the tricks to make many more baby friendly projects and lots of full sized ones too!
