(November’s motif, Cabled Eyelets, is pictured above.)

First Tuesday of Every Month beginning November 1st at 7:30pm
  • Knit a beautiful 12″x12″ square with a different stitch motif each month. 
  • After you complete 12 squares, join them all together to create a gorgeous blanket you will be so proud of. 
  • Empower yourself as a knitter; you will no longer be intimidated by tough knitting patterns.
  • Learn every knitting pattern abbreviation I can find and the needle techniques to complete it.
  • Learn to knit cables, lace, bobbles, special ribbing, various increases and decreases, to read difficult knitting charts, advanced patterns and much more!
  • Use the stitch patterns you learn to create other special knitted items like scarves, baby blankets, cowls, etc. 
  • If you have a busy schedule, the 12×12 monthly group is perfect.  Just once a month – it is enough knitting to keep it fresh, and you will still learn a ton.
  • I took a class like this.  You will become a great knitter.  It works – I promise!  🙂
All you need to know to join the 12×12 group are the knit and purl stitches. 
Make-up classes available if you need to miss a class.
$25 per month or 5 for $100 (+ supplies)  Includes extra-help when you need it.

Needles: One set of size US 8 straight needles will be reused each month.  
Yarn: Approximately 175 yards of worsted-weight yarn per month, plus 300 yards for finishing.  Yarn must be 100% wool.  Suggestions are Cascade 220 (That’s what I’m using. Available at The Knitting Store  – 2 Poole Street in Oceanside 516.442.0722) – OR – Paton’s Classic Wool (available at Michael’s).   Keep dye lots in mind when making your purchases.
