Foundations IV: Knit a Hat

Moving into techniques that require ‘double pointed needles’ (DPN) and shaping –aka - increasing or decreasing can be intimidating at first, but we’re confident that you’ll be a pro by the time you finish this class.  The techniques and terminology discussed in this class will be critical for starting more advanced projects like sweaters or our signature ‘Newbury” Hooded Cowl.

In this class we will be making your first hat, The Kendall – our slouchy pom beanie that will have you looking forward to cold weather!
