Voted the city’s best place to knit by readers of Cincy magazine, Knit On! provides a cozy, welcoming atmosphere for novices to learn the arts of knitting and crocheting. After demonstrating how to cast on, instructor Sally Dixon will guide students through textbook skills such as knit stitches, yarn-over increases, and establishing a steady rocking-chair rhythm during long projects. In subsequent classes, the range of topics will grow ever more complex as students gain the tools to conquer any project, from a stocking cap to an afghan in the shape of a tetrahedron. Classes take place Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. with a rolling-admission schedule, allowing beginning knitters to start at any time.
