(November's motif, Cabled Eyelets, is pictured above.)
First Tuesday of Every Monthbeginning November 1st at 7:30pm
Knit a beautiful 12"x12" square with a different stitch motif each month.
After you complete 12 squares, join them all together to create a gorgeous blanket you will be so proud of.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE 12x12 MONTHLY MOTIF GROUP:
Empower yourself as a knitter; you will no longer be intimidated by tough knitting patterns.
Learn every knitting pattern abbreviation I can find and the needle techniques to complete it.
Learn to knit cables, lace, bobbles, special ribbing, various increases and decreases, to read difficult knitting charts, advanced patterns and much more!
Use the stitch patterns you learn to create other special knitted items like scarves, baby blankets, cowls, etc.
If you have a busy schedule, the 12x12 monthly group is perfect. Just once a month - it is enough knitting to keep it fresh, and you will still learn a ton.
I took a class like this. You will become a great knitter. It works - I promise! :)
All you need to know to join the 12x12 group are the knit and purl stitches.
Make-up classes available if you need to miss a class.
