My First Hat: The Barley Hat - In Store Workshop - December 4th and 11th
A 2-part Project Based Workshop
Mondays, December 4th and 11th from 1:00pm to 2:30pm
If you are a beginning knitter and want to add new skills to your knitting toolbox, the Barley Hat project-based class is for you. Barley, by Tin Can Knits, is a versatile hat that can be knit for all ages and be customized to fit like a beanie or a slouchy cap. In part one, we will cast on to circular needles, join to knit in the round, and talk about how to read a knitting pattern and what to look for in the perfect hat. Between the sessions, you will knit to the crown of the hat. The next week, class will begin with some time for questions before we move our knitting onto double-pointed needles. Then, we will make the decreases for the crown and finish off the hat. Lastly, we will talk about the different ways to block your new hat.
Skills taught in this class:
• Joining in the round without twisting the stitches
• Knitting in the round (useful for knitting, socks, sleeve, cowls, and sweaters)
