Classes Included

Knit Socks: Two at a Time! (2h 06m)
Do you suffer from second sock syndrome (when you knit one sock and never quite get around to finishing the second one)? You’re not alone. Join expert Kate Atherley and discover a more efficient way to knit socks so that when you’re done, you have two instead of one! Whether you prefer top-down or toe-up, you’ll learn how to knit two socks at the same time and modify any pattern for this time-saving method.

Perfect Knits Every Time: Understanding Knitting Patterns (2h 53m)
Choose the pattern that’s right for you and your skill set, every time! Join designer Kate Atherley and get equipped with the skills you need to find, evaluate and follow knitting patterns. During class, you’ll discover what to look for in your pattern so you can be sure it’s well-written. Then, Kate will teach you symbols, terminology and shortcuts as she takes you step by step through reading a pattern. Once you’re comfortable with written patterns, you’ll discover how to read and follow knitting charts and how to keep track of your stitches and rows for accurate knitting. Interested in knitting more complex projects? Kate will end class by helping you simplify advanced patterns, so you can challenge yourself and succeed at projects that are sure to make you proud!

Blocking Handknits (2h 04m)
After you’ve finished knitting a project, use blocking techniques to bring out the best in your work! With knitwear designer and author Kate Atherley as your guide, learn how to use blocking wires to make your stitchwork pop, your knitwear fit, your projects feel soft to the touch, and so much more. Kate will teach you about blocking, drying, and caring for a huge range of fibers, as well as how to protect your projects and supplies from moths and pests. Kate will even demystify using blocking wires to create perfectly straight edges, and pinning projects to form the shape and size you desire. Plus, Kate will take you step-by-step through blocking mittens, hats, lace scarves, lace shawls, one-piece, and multi-piece garments for the fabulous finish they deserve.
