- 25 US dollars$25
- Online Session
This class will cover the bare-bones must-have skills to begin knitting with 1.5 contact hours of lessons. Cast-On and Go! can be a stand alone class for those wishing to learn the very basics. If you want to take your learning even further and make a hat in 3 weeks, the Beginning Knitting: Basics and Beyond Class is the follow up class for you! In Cast On and Go! students will work on a dish cloth while learning the following: ~How to cast on with the long tail cast on ~How to make a knit stitch ~How to make a purl stitch ~How to cast off ~Terminology needed to look up these skills online or in books ~The most useful books to have access to when learning to knit ~What’s next? We will provide information on where to look when ready to take knitting beyond dishcloths. Materials List ~one skein of Paintbox Aran Cotton, Sugar and Cream, or some other suitable cotton yarn (please email Sönna if you would like to use a different yarn to be sure that it will work for this class) OR if you plan to take the Beginning Knitting: The Basics and Beyond please have 100g/100yds chunky (size 5 yarn) ~straight or circular needles in size US 8 (5mm) ~Notebook and pen
All classes are non refundable, however I recognize that occasionally a class must be missed. If that is the case, the following explains what I ask of you, and how I am able to work with you to make it up as well as what I am able to offer in the very rare occasion that I must miss a class. In the case of a student not being able to attend I can offer you space in one of the following two Studio Classes if: 1. I receive notice of your need to miss class 24 hours prior to the class you must miss and 2. As of 12pm on that day there is space available in the Beyond Beginning Project Class. This is a 2 hour class with other students attending and working on different projects, so I may not be able to cover everything we went over in class that you missed, but I will do my best to get you the vital information. In the case of a class being cancelled by me, I will reschedule a make-up class on the same day of the week and time that the canceled class was scheduled and as close to the classes you signed up for as possible. If you can not attend the rescheduled class, you may attend any Studio Class of your choosing free of charge. I will be emailing codes to enter upon signing up.
