Loom Knit a Scarf Now for Warm, Fuzzy Gifts Later
Thursdays, December 5 & 12, 10 a.m. to Noon
Winter has descended and who doesn't need a warm scarf to wrap around to keep snuggly and warm from the wintery San Francisco fog? Learn to make a scarf using a loom and get ready to make this year's gifts all by hand. This class will teach the e-wrap and purl stitches. You will also learn the differences between garter and stockinette techniques. This class is aimed toward the beginner loom knitter, but anyone can join. Knowledge of how to cast on, e-wrap, and bind off (covered in November's Hat's Off to Loom Knitting) is preferred but not required--just bring your desire to learn and have fun.
1 skein of yarn, preferably worsted weight; bulky is ideal for beginners
A 24 or 31 peg loom
Bringing your own supplies is strongly recommended; limited supplies will be available for borrowing on a first-come, first-served basis. RSVP to Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-694-7316.
