Knitting (Introductory Level)
April 11 – May 2, 2017 (Tuesdays, 4 weeks)
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Learning to knit for fun and pleasure is a great addition to anyone’s life! Students will learn casting on and off, basic knitting stitches, abbreviations and pattern reading.
We will start off with a practice piece to get familiar with the knitting technique. Once students are comfortable, they can start on a simple pattern of their choice such as a dishcloth, a scarf or a hat. This class will be structured so that everyone can advance at their own comfort level. Learn at a pace that is comfortable for you. Take your time and have fun with it!
Students should bring with them size 8 or 5 mm needles, worsted weight yarn-acrylic or wool in a solid colour, scissors, notepad and pencil.
Stephanie MacLean was born and raised in Cape Breton but didn’t learn how to knit until later in life. After graduating from marketing at CBU she felt like she needed more creative fulfillment, so she picked up needles and taught herself how to knit. Four years later, she hasn’t put them down! Stephanie started her handmade knitwear business, Home in the East, months after learning the traditional craft and sells her products at various markets and boutique stores across the province. She continues to learn and develop her skill by challenging herself to create new designs that will add coziness to any wardrobe.
