Beginning knitting classes teach students basic needle maneuvers, including casting on, binding off, and knit and purl stitches. During two-hour sessions held over two consecutive weeks, students will combine four basic patterns to create either a sampler scarf or a series of dishcloths. Each class size is limited to eight students.
Staffers at Kirkwood Knittery happily direct shoppers to a colorful collection of knitted sweaters, hats, and wraps; however, they're not for sale. That’s because staff members would rather teach customers to make the garments themselves during classes aimed at beginning and intermediate knitters. Sessions, which typically meet in four one-hour segments or two two-hour segments; cover skills such as basic stitches, circular knitting methods, and crochet patterns; and culminate in the creation of a scarf, pair of socks, or knitted umbrella. Before classes, students can peruse the shop’s selection of yarns to choose an attractive skein whorled from international wools, organic cottons, or rare fibers.
