LEARN 10 NEW SKILLS

In this class, students will learn 10 intermediate knitting skills that will improve the quality and finishing of their work. We will create a tiny mock-up of the Hatdana pattern as a tool to learn the skills listed below. This pattern yields a unique, versatile and practical accessory that can be worn as a hat, a bandana, a headwrap, and a cowl. It is a single-skein project designed for worsted and fingering weight yarns.

Students will receive a class curriculum. We will refer back to the curriculum throughout the class to ensure we meet the expectations set below. Students will learn:

● How to creatively edge knit fabric so that it lays flat and doesn’t roll ● Which increase to use, when, why, and how to make it ● Managing multiple stitch markers ● Working cables without a cable needle ● How to insert a lifeline ● Knitting in the round using Magic Loop ● How to work an Invisible Sewn Bind Off that mimics a Tubular Bind Off without grafting ● How to weave in a tail in ribbing for an invisible finish ● How to work a duplicate stitch ● How to create tassels and attach them to your knitting

TECHNIQUE REQUIREMENTS / CLASS LEVEL Students must know how to knit / purl, cast on and bind off. Adventurous beginner to intermediate.

HOMEWORK: None

Since 1971, we have sponsored workshops to give students the opportunity to study with exceptional instructors in the relaxed atmosphere of this unique village. Our workshops are held on the second floor of the Bethuel Harris Mill which sits at the end of the canal overlooking the mill pond and originally operated on water-power. This beautiful brick building was built in the 1830’s as a spinning mill for locally raised wools and it now houses our retail shop on the first floor and provides excellent studio space for our students on the second floor. It is relished for its sunlit windows, fresh air and tranquility. In order to create the atmosphere of a working studio rather than a classroom, we limit enrollment in our workshops. Most classes meet daily from 9 am to 4 pm; however, the studio is open to students 24 hours a day while class is in session. During the 5 day classes, students will have the opportunity to tour our spinning mill and listen to a talk on the history of Harrisville. Yarn and other materials for the workshops are usually included in the tuition unless otherwise noted.
Withdrawal/Refund Policy: Tuition includes a non-refundable $50.00 registration fee for each workshop. Students who must withdraw have 5 weeks prior to class for a full tuition refund less the registration fee. After this date all payments are non-refundable.
