Heralded by the New York fashion industry for crafting designer knitwear, instructor and owner Berta Karapetyan inspires pupils to weave runway ready knits using high-end yarns. A beginning knitting or crocheting course ($75) spans three sessions and covers basic stitch techniques after which students complete their own scarf or cactus sweater. Alternatively, a private lesson ($40) meets once, yet wraps individuals in personalized attention, and the finishing techniques session ($75) divulges professional secrets regarding seaming, buttonholes, and button bands. Though supplies are not included with classes, participants may peruse the shop's endless assortment of delicate fibers including cashmere, baby camel, Cher wig, and mohair yarns.
School Products Yarn
When she isn’t busy knitting the kinds of garments that appear in collections by Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein, Berta Karapetyan shares her skills with fellow crafters at School Products Yarn. Located in an historic Manhattan yarn shop, the store stays true to its building’s past by stocking its shelves with a vast supply of yarns, needles, and woolly Civil War–era mutton chops.
The store’s ample fiber selection ranges from affordable wool blends to skeins of luxurious cashmere. Needles come in a variety of sizes, and a collection of handy tools and accessories keeps projects running along smoothly. Berta’s 25 years of industry experience serve her well when she’s advising purchases or overseeing students as they craft socks or snuggies for their pet anacondas during knitting classes.
