Skills Classes

Anything Goes

Anything Goes classes are offered multiple times a week! You’ll have the undivided (okay, maybe a little divided) attention of an instructor, and will be able to work on the project(s) of your choice. You’ll have the opportunity to learn a new skill, decipher a stubborn pattern, and learn from the projects your classmates are working on. Important - please read our Anything Goes class policies.
Monday (Bridgit)10am — 12pm
Tuesday (Becky)11am — 1pm
Wednesday (Bridgit)10am — 12pm

The Circumnavigated Cardigan

circumnavigated cardigan
A true knitting engineering marvel, this "any yarn, any gauge" cardigan is completely seamless without the use of a scary steek. Check out the Circumnavigated Cardigan on Ravelry to see just how different one pattern can look with different yarn/gauge choices.

We recommend that you stop by the shop prior to the first day of class to pick out your yarn and homework for the project.
