This class is for complete beginners who want to dive head-first into their next obsession! Make one of these bags, and you'll have to make three more. We swear, they're addictive! And deceptively simple and quick.
This class is split into four sessions over five weeks, giving you ample time to knit the entire bag. You also get to learn a few new techniques in each session so you're not overwhelmed by everything at once!
Class Dates: Monday, October 1, 6:00–7:00: Learn to cast on & knit. Monday, October 8, 6:00–7:30: Learn to pick up stitches, purl, and add new yarn. Monday, October 22, 6:00–7:30: Learn bind off & cable cast on, and how to felt. Monday, October 29, 6:00–7:00: Learn to make an I-cord & show off your finished bag!
