Beginning Knitting & More

The exact origins of knitting are unknown, the earliest known examples being cotton socks found in Egyptian pyramids.  This is not a history course for knitting, but knitting goes that far back.  It's obviously a tried and true skill.

You do NOT have to read those "how to" books, let our very own Vera Fingerle teach you the basics of knitting.  

The first course in this Knitting 101 series is beginning knitting; Learn how to read a pattern, basic stitches and how to use double pointed needles.  In four weeks, you can learn all you need to and then move onto our "advanced" or "more beginning knitting."

In course two, you will learn all about open and closed cable stitches, popcorn stitch and so much more.
