The sky is the limit once you know how to knit in the round. If you have only been knitting "flat" so far--on straight needles, turning at the end of your rows, needing to worry about the front side versus the back side of your work--then this class will free you up for the most amazing knitting you've ever done. Make hats, mittens, legwarmers, even sweaters with the skills you'll pick up in this class.

We'll talk in depth about garter stitch versus stockinette, how to join to knit in the round, making sure your work isn't twisted, how to tell when you're at the end of the round, and more!

Materials Needed:

Bring a US 8 circular needle (in 16" length) and a smooth worsted weight yarn (no fuzzy, bumpy, or eccentric-looking novelty yarns, just plain old worsted weight yarn in a light or bright color). This class is technique based, not project based, but we'll talk lots and lots about how to make plenty of different things.

You should already know the knit stitch.
