Whether you are obsessed with beanies, or simply want to learn how to knit: our new Knitting CraftJam is a must! Learn basic stitches and make all the beanies you ever dreamed of. This workshop is designed for absolute beginners, but also fun for not-so-newbies who want to have some fun and stitch with others. 

Through in-class demonstrations and home assignments, students will learn the foundations of knitting – casting on, knitting, purling, simple stitch patterns, and binding off. Students will be able to complete endless projects on their own after taking this class.
