All the following classes will be taught at Passionknit in Toronto. Please register in advance either by coming into the shop or calling Passionknit at (416) 322-0688.
Easy Moebius (Shawl, Hood, Snood…)
During this class you will learn how to cast-on using the provisional method and how to graft together a seam. We will be making a fun and funky Moebius out of Mirasol’s new chunky yarn - Ushya. A snuggly treat!
(Peachy) Tues. Feb. 8, 7 – 9pm. $30 plus materials.*
There are many methods used to cast-on for a project. If you are interested in learning what cast-on is best for what project as well as hands on basic and decorative methods, this is the class for you! (Peachy) Thurs.

Continental Knitting – Easy Lace Scarf

Finishing Techniques – Seams and Picking Up Stitches
This class is for those who are interested in augmenting their finishing skills. We will go over the most used seaming techniques (the mattress stitch and the back stitch) and learn how to pick-up stitches. We will also talk about the importance of blocking and go over other useful terms and definitions. Students will be required to make three 3” by 3” stockinette stitch squares out of a medium weight yarn and block them in time for the class. Please bring the following to class: Knitted squares, contrasting yarn, darning needle, scissors and knitting needles of same size used to make squares. Please note that the homework is to be done independently and no instruction will be given prior to class. (Pinchy) Thurs. Feb. 24, 7 – 9pm. $30*
