Next Steps in Knitting: Trying out Hats

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
6:00pm - 7:00pm
North Park - Meeting Room

Add to your knitting skills with this Next Steps in Knitting class for folks already comfortable with the knit and purl stitches. We will be knitting in the round on circular needles, and possibly on double points as well.
In this class you will knit either a round, beanie style hat, or a boxier hat with ears, if you want to get started on your Halloween costume.

The first class will cover casting on, how to join your stitches in order to knit in the round, knitting ribbing, and anything else you need to knit the body of the hat.
The second class, two weeks later, will cover decreasing and switching to double point needles for the classic winter hat, plus finishing work. For the hat with ears, the focus will concentrate on finishing work, including the three needle bind-off.
Kelly will also address problems that come up, and if time allows, we may talk about how the pattern can be adapted to include other design features - for example, what changes would you make to turn a beanie into a Santa hat?

For this class, you must supply needles and yarn, and we will supply the pattern. Contact Nancy when you register to choose a project, and she will provide you with a supply list. If you have problems providing supplies, Nancy may be able to help.

Crocheters who are interested may attend and receive a pattern for a similar hat using crochet. Instruction is not available, but Stacy can provide some coaching if you get stuck.
