Have you learned the basics of knitting and purling but are stumped by how to read a pattern? Do you find yourself asking questions such as what is an ssk? A kfb? How do I pick up stitches? This is the class designed for a beginner who is ready to start working with patterns and learn about how knitting is shaped through increases and decreases. Please bring to class any questions you have about patterns, patterns you might like to try, as well as some worsted or Aran weight yarn with appropriate size needles for a practice swatch.
