$29 for a Two-Class Knitting 101 Package ($60 Value)

  • Two two-hour Knitting 101 classes
  • One skein of Cascade pure alpaca yarn in a color of your choice
  • One set of straight Brittany knitting needles

Over the course of two sessions, novices learn to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off—the elements that will help with two more advanced elements, the stockinette stitch and the garter stitch. In addition to learning these hands-on skills, students will leave equipped to face the world of fiber head-on with essential information about yarn quality and weight, needle gauge, patterns, common vocabulary, and kitten repellent. Knitters will also receive a pattern for a scarf they will be creating.

Alpaca Direct

Their heads wobble unsteadily on long necks. Their knobby knees stick out. Their faces maintain an expression of delighted, bug-eyed curiosity. These gawky creatures are alpacas—petite, fluffy camelids native to the Andes Mountains—and, despite their goofy appearance, they help produce the ultra-fashionable garments sold by Alpaca Direct.

What alpaca farmers Kelley and Jim Hobart founded as a small family farm where they and their children lived, worked, and learned has become a cozy empire that ships yarn, sweaters, scarves, and socks worldwide. The farm manufactures soft, warm yarn, and even offers classes that teach crafters how to knit and crochet. Alpaca wool is extremely strong, lightweight, and hypoallergenic, and it naturally comes in a wide range of colors while also being receptive to dyes. Its hollow fibers give alpaca sweaters incredible thermal properties, so cold air stays out and the heat of the pizza you’ve slipped down your shirt stays in.
