Class Description

Teacher: Theressa Silver
Course: One 1.5-hour session
3 to 5 students

This class will cover everything you need to know to successfully combine yarn, pattern, and needles to create finished items that you’ll be proud of. The first part of the class will be spent learning about the what, why, and how of gauge. You’ll learn how to knit an accurate swatch both flat and in the round and how to correctly measure gauge from the swatch. We’ll discuss how to adjust gauge as needed and cover the relationships between yarn weight, needle size, and gauge so that you’ll be able to confidently make yarn  substitutions. Then the class will explore the wide range of yarns available in the shop, discussing the particular characteristics of each type and what each kind of yarn is best suited for. We’ll discuss different fibers, plied yarns vs singles, superwash, “thick and thin” yarns, and other specialty yarns.

Handout will be provided in class (Bring a pen if you wish to take notes.)
