Class List - Fall 2014

GREAT AMERICAN ARAN AFGHAN

I have mentioned before my desire to both knit this afghan and use it as a means for teaching basic knitting techniques. This beautiful afghan is knit in squares using different stitch patterns, all designed by the readers of Knitter's magazine. 

The magazine showed one pattern each month for twelve months.

At the end of the year you'd have the makings of a beautiful aran afghan.  We'll work one square each month and discuss all the techniques involved in completing that square.  You'll perfect your knitting skills and create this heirloom afghan all while learning many knitting tips and techniques.

Since you'll want your squares to be knit from the same dye lot you'll want purchase your yarn before the class starts.

If you stop by to sign up and purchase your yarn by September 10, you'll receive a 15% discount on your yarn.

Dates/Times: The first Wednesday of each month, 9:00 - 10:00, beginning September 10.

PRICE: $10 per session
