Title: Introduction to Knitting
Description: In this introductory class, students will learn the knit and purl stitches as well as how to cast on and bind off a project. We will create two small washcloths. One will be in garter stitch and the other in bordered stockinette. Students will go home with their own needles, an additional washcloth pattern, and enough yarn to continue their knitting journey.
Instructor: Katie Van Houten taught herself how to knit almost 20 years ago while on bed rest with her oldest child. Since then, she has expanded her craft into knitting lace, cables, and stranded color work in shawls, hats, socks, and sweaters. Katie is most proud of the garments that she has test knit as part of the design process for local Huntsville knitwear designer Knitosophy. Check out some of her finished work on Instagram @jkvanfam.
