 April Classes
Introduction to Mitered Squares

This class is focused on technique rather than a project. Margaret will introduce class participants to making mitered squares by working on a simple block using one skein of worsted weight yarn. A light colored yarn is recommended to enable students to see their stitches. When completed, the block can be used as a wash cloth, hot pad or doll blanket, depending on yarn selection (cotton, 100% wool, or blend, respectively).
Date: Wednesday, April 18
Time: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Margaret
Level: Advanced Beginner
(You must know how to cast on, knit and purl).
Supplies: One skein worsted weight light-colored yarn, one set of needles (straight or circular) sized to the yarn, "safety pin" style stitch markers, scissors, pen/pencil. A pattern will be provided.
Please purchase your yarn and supplies prior to the beginning of class.
NOTE: The photo is representative of how mitered squares look but is not a picture of the block the class will be working on.
