Knit the way the world has been knitting since the 19th century!Twice as fast, just as accurate, easier on your joints and simply more efficient and fun! The basis of anything you create always begins with two stitches: the knit and the purl. Become proficient in both and manipulate the stitches into a broad variety of patterns. Depending on your level and interest, begin by knitting an 8” square for a face or dish cloth or ultimately one of several that can become an afghan or blanket. This is a beginner to intermediate class.
Required: #6 or #7 circular knitting needles 24” length, 100g (4 Oz.) worsted-weight yarn (cotton, linen, wool, acrylic blend-plain, not novelty or textured) in a light color and a pair of scissors (approx. $15-20).
