Learn a lifelong skill with our pro Becky, who has taught beginning knitters in Billings for the past 10 years. Many of you will recognize her as the former owner of Billings Gymnastics School and know that she is comfortable teaching all types of learners. According to Becky, "the lightbulb really goes off between the second and third class". In this series of 3 classes you will learn the anatomy of a stitch and how to recognize Knits and Purls, while following a pattern with knitting terminology. You will also be exposed to reading a chart, another component of pattern reading. Finish the class with tips and tricks, practice fixing mistakes, and leave with ideas and patterns to confidently move on to your next project!

Summer Knit-a-Long: Scarfy Thing
Monday, June 4, 6 - 8 pm
Join Ashley for a few technique tips to get you going on your own Scarfy Thing! Pick a consistent background color (2 full skeins of same or coordinated colors) and throw in pops from your stash, sock yarn mini skeins, get together with a friend and share some irresistible full skeins, check out our sale room for random bits of fun fingering weight yarns sold by the ounce . . .
The piece is a truly improvised effort and even if I could write a row by row pattern, it would be perhaps more of a hindrance to the creative process. Arm yourself with 2 full skeins in similar colours and and a bunch of Sock Minis or sock yarn scraps in contrasting colours and off you go. Pick up stitches, change direction, cast on some stitches, knit a smaller then a bigger section.
Workshop fee: $25.00 Materials: Approximately 1400-1600 yards fingering weight yarn. 32" US 4 circular needle. All supplies receive 10% discount at Yarn Bar.
