The seasoned yarn wranglers at Stitch DC guide students through knitting basics and advanced techniques during stitching classes spanning a three-week period. Knitting 101 courses inaugurate crafters to the basic stitches and skills of fashioning handmade scarves and hats, bedecking designs with stockinette and seed stitches that give accessories unique flair without weaving in personal dental records. Confident purlers can opt to tackle the advanced techniques of cowls and mittens during the Knitting 201 course, in which instructors guide hands through incorporating multiple colors, adding dimension with cable work, and fashioning lace designs. The 1.5- to 2-hour classes meet once a week for three weeks, allowing patrons to practice newfound knitting abilities between sessions. The shop carries a wide range of fibers for knitting projects, lining shelves with wool, cashmere, mohair, and alpaca skeins in hues as bright and intricate as a neon rendering of a double rainbow. Check the class schedule for upcoming sessions.
