Building Blocks
Cost: $15/session or $100 for 12 sessions
with Carolyn Gifreda
Skill Level: Beginner

Sat. 2/9 10:30AM – 12:30PM

The Building Blocks Series is designed to help knitters navigate through major knitting skills, techniques, and principles. Each of the 12 patterns isolates a new skill. In a carefully designed sequential approach, knitters master each technique before moving on to a more advanced concept. Students will make a new square to practice each new technique, finishing the year with 12 beautiful blocks that can be assembled into a sampler afghan!

Students can jump in at different points, but we recommend following along from beginning to end, so you don’t miss any important steps!
