Take a Class at Stitch DC in August

Come take a class this August at Stitch DC.

August is a fun time in the knit shop. Each day it seems like we get new fall arrivals that inspire us to make all sorts of winter woolens.

I have a full calendar of beginner knit classes and advanced technique classes to inspire you.

Here is a sampling of the classes. The full schedule is available here. We've made it easy to sign up online by going to the calendar. Or call us, to register and talk to someone.

Where to Start? Try one of our beginner or crash course classes.

Beginner Knitting
This is where we start. Also a great refresher course. Three sessions total. Learn to knit, purl, stockinette stitch, seed stitch, cast on, bind off. $80/plus materials.

Want to explore more techniques and projects? This is the knitting world beyond scarves. You know how to knit and purl. Now you can try to knit with two colors, make cables, improve your finishing, or just enjoy good company and fun patterns. These classes are just the ticket.

This class will show you how to read a color chart, offer tips to holding and knitting with multiple threads of yarn, and how to make a steek that you can then cut (yes, cut) your work to make a pretty fair isle coffee cozy. 8/31 and 9/7 / 6:30 to 8:00 pm / $55
