knitting series: knit yourself a hat

In this class students will knit their first hat! Employing the techniques learned from beginner knitting and skill builder, students will cast-on in the round, learn to knit a rib stitch for the brim and learn to decrease as they work their way up the hat to the crown. They will also learn to change active stitches from a circular needle to Double Pointed Needles for small circumference knitting, AND, if time allows, they will be taught to make a pompom!! What more could you want. 

Required materials:

One Skein Bulky weight yarn (approx. 106yds to 100g) for example our Bennoto yarn, available here  (Worsted or Aran weight would also work)
Needles: US8 16in circular needles (available here); US8 Double Pointed Needles (available here)

Students must have completed beginner knitting and skill builder (or equivalent level of experience), and be confident in casting on, knit stitch and purl stitch. 

Students will be required to do homework in between the two classes!!

We have modified our classes to comply with the CDC guidelines and NJ Executive Order 152. This class will be limited in size, stations will be at least 6 feet away from each other and students will be required to wear a mask. The instructor will be wearing one. 

Skill Level: intermediate
Skill Details: Students must be confident with casting-on, knit stitch, and purl stitch
Instructor: Mandy Richards
