This class is perfect for those knitting for the first time or needing a refresher in the basics (no prior experience is necessary). We'll take you from project start to finish as you stitch a simple sunglasses case. Learn how to cast on, knit, purl, two types of decreases, buttonholes, seaming, and more! Build confidence in reading a pattern, determining gauge, reading yarn ball bands, reading your knitting, and fixing mistakes.
Please bring 4.5mm needles, 50-100 grams of a light coloured worsted weight yarn, notebook, and pencil.
Kerri lives in Kelowna and is a lover of all things cozy. You'll often find her sipping tea under a blanket with her needles clicking and hand knit socks warming her feet! She learned to knit from her mom at a young age, and she has loved squishing yarn ever since. Kerri has taught knitting to people of all ages, including children at the elementary school where she is a teacher by day. She especially loves that moment when a student's eyes light up after having knit their very first stitch! Kerri also designs knitting patterns, and she particularly enjoys creating sock designs inspired by her favourite movies and TV shows.
