Center, Hawk Art Studio.

1 – Beginning Knitting: Casting
Learn to “cast-on” using thumb and long tail methods. Practice the knit stitch (all you need to know to make a scarf!) and come away ready to start your own project!

2 – Beginning Knitting: Understanding Texture
Learn to create texture by understanding the construction of knit and purl stitches, and how to use them together in knitting projects with ribbed edges and classic cable knits.

3 – Intermediate Knitting: Reading Patterns & Increases and Decreases
Learn the “increases” and “decreases” technique (a skill for hats, mittens & sweaters) along with an introduction to understanding patterns so you can tackle more complex projects with confidence and tailor them to your particular specifications.

4 – Intermediate Knitting: Finishing
Learn seaming and binding-off techniques for polished final projects!
