This class is in progress.
Building Blocks was created to move the new knitter beyond the basics by introducing the major knitting techniques in a systematic approach. Each block builds upon the skills of the previous block, allowing the knitter to gain confidence and knowledge while working towards a beautiful sample afghan.
Students must be able to knit, purl, cast on and bind off with little to no instruction to sign up for this class.
