ARM KNITTING FOR ONE AND ALL: ANNE WEIL Session One: Saturday, October 25: 9-Noon Session Two: Saturday, October 25: 1:30-4:30pm
Learn to make this beautifully knit cowl with NO needles or even knitting skills required! Arm knitting is easy to learn and fun to do. I’ll teach you the best way to keep the stitches looking full, how to stop in the middle, and how to fix common mistakes. We’ll cast on, bind off and learn a great invisible seam that will make your cowl look spectacular. You can’t beat this for gifts for the holidays, as you can make a beautiful scarf in an hour or two.
This is the perfect class for knitters and non knitters alike! You’ll be able to make the cowl in the class time and you’ll leave with a detailed PDF so you’ll be sure to duplicate the process once you are home. I’ll also offer suggestions for other fabulous things to make with your new arm knitting skills.
