About this experience

In this class students will learn the basic stitches - knit and purl - as well as how to cast-on and bind-off. This class is perfect for absolute beginners, or those who would like to improve upon their DIY knitting skills.


This is a beginner class - no experience necessary! Price includes thoughtfully sourced materials (no additional materials fees). Students also get 15% off in the shop while they are workshop students (for multi-session/week workshops this discount applies to the entire duration of workshop).

All classes meet at our shop at 606 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia PA 19119 - in the heart of Mt. Airy Village. There is plenty of free on-street parking as well as High Point Cafe and Weaver's Way Co-op steps away for your food and beverage needs. Kiddos are always welcome to hang in the shop!
