Our Knitting Classes are More than Just Learning to Knit

Take it from Boston Magazine's own, Jon Gorey. Knitting workshops at Third Piece aren't all serious. Other than learning basic techniques like slip knot, casting on, knit stitch, and binding off, you'll also be having an amazing time with the Third Piece instructors and other knitters!

Here's more from Jon Gorey, "Knitting has long fascinated me. It’s the ancient motion of the needles: the fluid dips and dives, slowly birthing a piece of clothing from strands of what used to be a sheep’s fleece—it’s hypnotizing. It’s also exceptionally hard to learn by yourself. I sign up for a two-hour workshop at Third Piece on Tremont Street."

"Third Piece has a clean, modern feel, with whitewashed brick and a sleek high-top table in back where our class of three assembles. We start by choosing a big ball of chunky yarn (the store’s own line of merino wool), and then learn basic techniques—slip knot; casting on; knit stitch; binding off—on a practice project the size of a bracelet. Our animated instructor, Jin, makes it look effortless as she demonstrates the moves in slow motion with an encouraging grin."
