Baffled by gauge swatches? Having trouble with tension? Want to improve your cast-ons and bind-offs? This class is for you!

Join us for this eclectic, fast-paced class that is full of Heather’s tips and tricks to make your knitting shine. We will cover blocking and measuring gauge quickly, then move on to perfecting your cast-ons and bind-offs, taming your tension, ways to join new yarns, weaving in ends, joining to work in the round, cabling without a cable needle, and loads more!


PREREQUISITE:  Basic knitting skills

HOMEWORK:  One swatch, blocked. Using a solid, light-colored, smooth, worsted weight yarn, cast on 30 sts with appropriate needles (size 7 or 8 will work for most knitters.)

Work 5” of stockinette st. Bind off. Please block your swatch before class. (Ideally, soak in lukewarm water, then lay it flat to dry, uncurling the edges and pinning square – without stretching the swatch.)
