Knitting Bootcamp Kristin Drysdale
March 7th & 14th
5pm until 8pm
Knitting in a nutshell- Learn all the basic cast on, knit and purl (both continental and English styles), decreasing, increasing, binding off and buttonholes. You will learn about gauge and how to knit a swatch. We’ll even do a bit of color work. You will learn the terms and abbreviations to help you decode the language of knitting. Because Kristin believes knitting should have a purpose, you will be learning swatching at the beginning and then knitting a pair of wrist warmers.
