Our beginners are always asking what is next just after they've learned to knit. The next thing we usually teach you is the purl stitch, because once you know the knit and the purl, you can really start to venture out. This class is perfect for you if you've recently become familiar with knits and purls and are ready to dive into what is next!
We love our Basic Hat Two Ways pattern because it is quick to knit up and you will learn so much in just two sessions! You can use this one pattern to make a fitted hat with a fold up brim or a slouch hat. You can do one color, two colors, or two colors with stripes.
This class will be taught in two sessions:
Session 1 - Students will learn how to join in the round on 16" circular needles without twisting to begin the hat. After we get started, it just gets easier, so we will discuss what's ahead and how to make the most of your two sessions.
Session 2 - When we resume after a few weeks, we will begin working on the decreases, moving forward into switching to the double point needles and how to finish the hat and add the optional pompom.
Supplies needed for this class are 2 skeins of Ikigai Chibi Paka Chunky, 16" US 9 circular needles, size US 9 double points or Addi Flexiflips, stitch markers and a darning needle. Pompom is optional!
Because there are multiple options, we will have you purchase your supplies separately. Please just come in before hand or show up a few minutes before class to choose your color(s) and get the rest of your supplies.
**It is recommended that students are very comfortable with knitting and purling.
