Children ages 10 and up will learn all of the basics of knitting in our three week class and start their very own scarf.

Three 1.5 hour classes.

Skills needed:
Absolutely none! Our beginner class is ideal for those completely new to the craft.

Skills learned:

  • knit stitch

  • purl stitch

  • cast on

  • bind off

  • "tinking" or working back

  • common knitting terms

  • full fibre education


  • 250-300 yards worsted weight wool, wool blend or other natural fiber in a light color. We suggest Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Wool, Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok, Berroco Pure Wool, Manos del Uruguay Alegria Grande or Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Worsted and US#8 (5mm) bamboo needles in straight or circular.

  • Darning needle or notion kit/set

  • G or H crochet hook or stitch fixer

*We recommend that you do not use metal needles, cotton or acrylic fibers or very dark colors as they make the learning process more difficult.

Optional Reading Materials (one of the following):

  • Churchmouse Yarns The Learn-To-Knit Companion

  • Susan B. Anderson's Kids Knitting

  • Kids Knitting by Melanie Falick

Be sure to come to the shop early enough to have your supplies purchased and your yarn wound into balls before the start of class (suggested 15-30 minutes).

Class fees are not refundable unless the class is canceled by the shop. If cancellation is made outside of 72 hours of class start time, you will be provided with a store credit for use for any future purchase with the shop. Unless otherwise indicated, our classes are for adults only. Your registration is valid for the dates listed in the description and may not be transferred to other class dates.

We offer a full refund within 30 days on any full priced yarn, bag or clothing item in original condition with receipt. Wound yarn or yarn smelling of smoke or containing pet hair may not be returned. Unfortunately, there are no returns on gift cards, needles, notions, books, patterns or discounted yarns.
