Susan's Knit Club

Knit Club is a 6-month series of classes meeting once a month on Saturday mornings from 9–10:30 am. In each of the 6 sessions you will learn a new technique, start a small project using that technique, and enjoy a yummy treat and recipe.

Club meetings will be held on the first Saturday of each month. Our first session, February 3rd, introduces you to creating reversible cables: back cables, front cables, and braided cables. Pictured above, you can either make the “Reversible Boyfriend Scarf” (the scarf is reversible, not the boyfriend!), or a cowl version of the same pattern.

Please join us for some great techniques, delicious treats, and a lot of fun! You can take each class separately for $22.50, or save 30% by signing up for the whole series at $95. Sign up soon!

Beginning Saturday, February 3rd
Time: 9am-10:30am
Cost: $95 for a six month club membership

Here's What's Happening in the Knit Club!

Susan's Knit Club 2018 continues this month with the “Flat Lace Mitts” that are fingerless mitts worked flat, then seamed, and have optional short-row thumbs. The mitts begin with a simple lace rib (worked before class), and feature an unusual yarn-over pattern. Besides working angled decreases and 2 stitch crosses, you will learn to “dig in the hole” – knitting and purling in the hole created by an enlarged yarn-over.

When: Saturday, April 7th
Time: 9am - 10:30am
Cost: $22.50
