We’re pretty excited about the Spring. Not just because we can finally stop toting around the heavy coats, but also because we can look forward to lighter and brighter crafty projects. More hours of daylight means more opportunities to develop our knit and crochet skills! If you have similar ambitions – have a look at The Knit Cafe’s Spring Classes. All classes are now updated at theknitcafetoronto.com, but we have several, brand new classes that I would love to show-and-tell right here, right now!
How sweet is this little guy? I can’t thing of a more adorable way to improve your crochet skills then practicing 3D shaping techniques on this wee robot stuffy.
This is an addition to our “learn to knit” selection of classes. In Knit 101 Baby! you will be introduced to all the same skills covered in our original Knitting 101 class. You will learn knits and purls and back again, reading patterns and knitting in circles, but in this classes all the projects are pint sized. Make soft, cotton wash cloths, tiny sized hats, and sweet baby leggings! Knitters who have taken the Knitting 101 class in the past but are in need of a refresher might consider this class too!
This oh-so-pretty shawl is perfect for spring/summer weather. Crocheters who want to make the leap from basic to brilliant should consider this class. It will really help you understand lace stitching and pattern reading. It is a more advanced class for practised crocheters who like me really, really, really want this shawl!
One of the most popular crochet projects around is the simple “granny square” crochet blanket. There is a reason this blanket pattern has longevity. It is a classic design; only the colour need change for updates. Since this project is so beloved we thought we would pass on the granny square techniques to brand new crocheters. Learn how to crochet while you stitch this blanket, or afghan, or baby blanket, or pillow cover. Also a great class for folks who have taken the Crochet Crash Course but would like to add to their new skills.
It’s your choice – you can make these toeless, heel-less socks, or some fingerless mittens. All the while you will be learning the invaluable skill of knitting in circles on double pointed needles and practice your pattern reading too. Before you know it, you will be be ready to tackle mittens with tops or socks with heels and toes.
Kids will get hooked on crochet in this class! Youngins, ages 8-12 can learn how to manipulate hook and yarn to make all manner of things- starting with these cute bows!. Bows look great pinned to a sweater, worn as a headband or classically worn under a collar. We have a class scheduled in May/June – just in time to make one for Dad for Fathers Day!
