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!
