Jessica Kaufman is officially a Crafty Lady, having earned her Masters in Crafts Education and teaching knitting professionally.

If you can confidently execute both a knit stitch and a purl stitch, come play with all the amazing ways you can combine them.

We'll learn basket weave, several different ribbings, cables and mock cables, "drawing" with purls (charting your own design), and more. If you're a little rusty on knits and purls, consider this class a great refresher course. You might even learn a new trick or two for casting on, tensioning your yarn, or writing patterns!

(Class size 10; this is a one-night class, choose your session!)
