Knit 101: knitted cast-on, knit stitch, purl stitch, binding off.
Materials: 50g medium-weight yarn, size 7 or 8 needles

Knit/Crochet 102: one session, 2 hours, $14/$19* plus materials
Both Knit and Crochet 102 will be taught the second week of every month. You must have already mastered the techniques covered in Knit/Crochet 101 before you take the corresponding 102 course.
Knit 102 - Shaping: In this class you will learn how to do increases, decreases, and knitting in-the-round -- please see the course schedule for specifics regarding whether you will need circulars or double-pointed needles to complete the demonstration project.
Materials: 100g worsted-weight yarn, size 7 or 8 circular or DPNs
Crochet 102 - Projects: This class will focus on a particular project -- please see the course schedule for specifics regarding the project that will be taught and the materials required to complete the project.
Knit/Crochet 103: one session, 2 hours, $14/$19* plus materials
Both Knit and Crochet 103 will be taught in the third week of every month. You must have already mastered the techniques covered in Knit/Crochet 101 and 102 before you take the corresponding 103 course.
Knit 103 - Reading: Reading your knitting and reading knitting patterns

Knit/Crochet 201: one session, 2 hours, $16/$21* plus materials
Knit 201 will be taught twice per month; Crochet 201 will be taught once per month. These are advanced courses, and it is recommended that you are very comfortable with the craft before taking a class at this level. The Knit 201 course is designed for an experienced knitter to learn a new technique or skill. Crochet pattern reading is a complex task that many experienced knitters and crocheters find extremely difficult, which is why it is classified as a 201 course.
Knit 201 - Advanced Techniques: This class will focus on a single advanced technique. Examples of possible topics include magic-loop, long-tail cast-on, error-correcting, gauge, etc. Please see the course schedule for specifics regarding the technique that will be taught.
Crochet 201 - Pattern Reading: How to read and understand instructions in crochet patterns and charts.
Each month we will be offering a different project- or skill-focused course. Like the magic-loop socks, drop-spindle, and owls sweater classes that we recently offered, these may span multiple weeks, or we may consolidate instruction into a single day. In early December, we will be doing a one-day class on making teeny tiny sweaters -- good for Christmas ornaments, or holiday package-toppers. After the new year, we will have a beginner sweater course, a toe-up socks course, and many other such courses TBA.
All of our classes can be found on our website under the 'classes' link. This will show a list of links to any additional information on specific classes, as well as the calendar. We hope to have the schedule posted about two months ahead.
