Join us on Tuesday, February 5th for an Absolute Beginning Knitting Workshop! A friendly introduction to the absolute basics of knitting. Learn everything you need to make a simple, beautiful scarf. This scarf is made using only the knit stitch!

This workshop is suitable for Absolute Beginner Knitters. Absolute Beginners are Future Knitters who have not yet put ‘yarn’ to ‘needle,’ have neither ‘knit’ nor ‘purled,’ and don’t know the difference between ‘casting on’ and ‘casting off.’ Also, perhaps, Former Knitters who may have forgotten it all (you know who you are!). We’ll help you choose your materials and tools, and teach you to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off.
Materials for Free Workshops Must be Purchased at Lancaster Yarn Shop
Pre-registration is required! Please call the shop to save your spot!
