Class Description: “Building Blocks” is a series of 12 fun patterns that will build your knitting skills. Starting with simple knit and purl stitches, your confidence will grow as you progress through several major knitting principles. Each block focuses on new stitches and techniques in a sequential fashion that “builds” upon the previously learned skill. At the end of the series, the knitter is rewarded with an abundance of knitting know-how and 12 beautiful squares to assemble into a sampler afghan, baby blanket, pillows or anything limited only by your imagination.
Prerequisite skills: In order for you to feel comfortable in this class, students should know how to cast on, knit, purl, cast off. Great class for beginners or for anyone who wants to increase their skill level.
Materials Needed: Building Blocks Book, Yarn, Needles, Markers, Cable Needle, Blunt End Needle for Seaming
Yarn Recommended: Cascade 128, Encore Chunky, or any other chunky weight yarn. Worsted weight yarn will work as well but will make smaller squares than the shop model. I recommend solid colors, no heathers or variegated yarn.
We offer a 20% discount on supplies you might need to purchase for the class. You must purchase your yarn at The Stitchin’ Den.
Class Outcomes: Students will learn more than 12 different stitches, blocking, seaming
