In this four-week class, you’ll learn the basics of knitting with Mary. Beginning with casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off, you’ll get lots of practice and combine the fundamental knit and purl stitches to create a beautiful sampler scarf. Mary will also cover knitting tools and terminology, and the basics of gauge, yarn weight, and fiber. You’ll gain confidence as you learn how to fix simple mistakes and how to seam a blocked swatch. You are cordially invited to join the wonderful world of knitting! Who knows where your journey will take you?
