knitting 101: learn to knit

In this six-part class for beginners, students will work on two projects, starting with a simple washcloth and moving on to knit the Wheat Scarf by Tin Can Knits (finished scarf measured approximately 8" wide and 60" long). Whether you've never picked up a set of knitting needles in your life, or you've tried to learn on your own with little success, this class is for you. Finally learn that skill you've been wanting to try!

You will learn how to cast on, knit stitch, bind off, purl stitch, rib stitch and basic pattern reading. 

Students will be required to do homework in between the classes - there is a huge benefit to knitting a little every day, the more you do it the easier it becomes!

Required Materials:
- for scarf: (1) Wheat Scarf by Tin Can Knits pattern, free download available on Ravelry
- for scarf: 400 yds of worsted weight yarn, we recommend Cascade 220Malabrigo Rios or Berroco Vintage

- for washcloth: (1) skein of nifty cotton
We suggest selecting light colored yarn (white, beige, light tan) so it's easier to see your stitches during construction.
