Fee: $30 to PFA

Class Size: min 3–max 7

Description: This simple, ear-flap hat is a great way to learn how to knit in the round! In this project class, we will make Sourthern Lights hat from the Winter 2011 issue of Knitty. You will gain experience with knitting on circular needles and double pointed needles, as well as the opportunity to explore the magic loop method.

Beginning Knitting- A Simple Ribbed Scarf

Fee: $30 to PFA

Class Size: min 3–max 5

Ability level: beginner

Description: If you have always wanted to learn to knit, this is the class for you. We will start off with a simple scarf pattern which will teach you the basics of English-style knitting. You will learn how to knit, purl, and join yarn. You will come away with a cozy scarf and a firm base for moving on to other projects.

Materials: 1 set US size 13 straight needles; 2 or 3–100g balls of chunky yarn (at least 270 yards)

Students will need to provide their own yarn and needles. I will provide other notions to be used in class.

A few good resources for your materials:

Blushing Ewe carries gorgeous hand dyed bulky wool
The Wicked Stitch in Wamego
The Yarn Barn in Lawrence

And I do have chunky yarn on its way in to me, which I will have available for purchase in class for $12 a skein (100g/110yards). If you would like to purchase your yarn from me please let me know when you enroll.

(Also, if you sell chunky yarn, and would like me to add you to the purchaser list, please let me know!)
