What you'll learn in this beginner knitting class:

Learn the basics of knitting that will allow you to make your first hat or scarf and get started enjoying this year-round hobby.

In our class we'll learn the knit and purl stitches as well as how to cast on and bind off. During class, you'll practice these building blocks with lots of individualized help, and we'll send you home with a simple hat pattern to get you on your way.

No need to bring any materials to class with you. During the class, we'll be using US size 11 straight needles and Chunky Weight acrylic yarn in a light, solid color. You'll be able to take the needles home after class!

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
