“Knitting 101 or Crochet 101”
$30/Call or come in to make an appointment
Includes pattern, yarn, needles/hook, and an hour of instruction
If you are brand new to knitting or crochet, or need to relearn the basics, then this hour long class is just for you. Learn how to cast on, knit or crochet basic stitches, and bind off from one of our skilled instructors. Knitting and crochet appointments available during store hours.
$15 for 30 minutes/Call or come in to make an appointment
Do you have an in-depth question that would take more than a few minutes to answer, or a pattern that has you stuck? Do you prefer one on one instruction rather that learning in group settings?
When you schedule, specify what you’d like to work on, and then let our instructors guide you with confidence. Knitting and crochet appointments are available during store hours.
"Sock Knitting 101"
by appointment, $45 for three 30 min sessions (supplies not included)
Do you want to learn to knit socks? We offer one on one sessions just for sock knitting!
Session 1: We help you cast on and show 4 methods for knitting small things in the round: DPNs, 2 circular needles, magic loop, or small 9" circulars.
Session 2: Schedule this session when you are ready to turn the heel. We will walk you through it step by step and explain how to pick up stitches for the gusset.
Session 3: Toes! Once you are ready to decrease the toes, we help guide you through that step, and then work the kitchener graft for sealing up the toes.
