Almost time for back-to-school: are you ready? Then join us this Fall because we’re starting a fantastic series that meets monthly, designed to address all the most requested knitting know-how. Perfect for the knitter who knows how to knit but wants to learn essential techniques to use for virtually any project from swatches to sweaters!
Build your general mastery: learn to read your knitting, recognize and correct mistakes, eliminate gauge confusion, clarify pattern jargon and symbols, and address mysterious “technical” malfunctions. No simple (and boring) stockinette swatches here: we’re Building Blocks of knitterly knowledge with cool patterns, yummy yarn, and a unique communknitty of other like-minded Knitknack knitters.
Join us for this essential series of 12 monthy classes based on the book Building Blocks by Michelle Hunter (KnitPurlHunter.com). Guaranteed to build your skills and your confidence:
From the author:”Every pattern in the “Building Blocks” book focuses on the development of a skill while knitting a lovely square. Each square, or block, builds upon the skills learned in the previous patterns, giving knitters more confidence, knowledge and skill. At the completion of the series, the reward is an abundance of knitting know-how along with 12 gorgeous blocks to assemble into a sampler afghan.”
