Knitting (Beginning to Advanced) – Section 1

  • Dates: Tuesday, 5:00-7:00pm, 10 Weeks
    (Starts Oct. 11)
  • Tuition: $80
  • Instructor: Liz Sorenson

Knitting classes are open to multi-level knitting students from beginners to those with advanced skills. (Beginners: Please read paragraph marked “Focus on Beginning Knitting” below.) The classes are taught as on-going project classes where, depending upon experience, students may a) be new to the craft and want to learn to knit, or b) need skills refreshed or help choosing a new project, or c) bring projects they are working on to request occasional help. Students will receive one-on-one assistance from the instructor. When interesting problems or techniques arise, students may also review the problem/technique as a group and learn from each other.

The instructor will provide weekly tips on a variety of knitting techniques as short focused lessons. Beginners will be notified as to what to bring to the first class. All others should bring their knitting project, pattern, and tools (needles, knitting needle gauge, small ruler or swatch gauge, scissors, stitch makers, etc.).

Focus on Beginning Knitting: This is an additional two-hour session that will be held on Tuesday, September 27 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (The regular ten-week session will begin on Tuesday, October 11.) If you have no experience, this is the focused class that you need to get started. Learn how to make a slip knot, cast on stitches, make the knit stitch, make the purl stitch, and how to bind off (end) your knitting. Individual attention, teacher demos, and learning to recognize mistakes will give you a head-start when you later decide to begin a knitting project. This two-hour session is optional, and there is no charge. It is limited to six students, and eligibility is at the discretion of the instructor.
