Does your kindergartener through sixth-grader need help with a crafting project, especially one that is fiber-related (knitting, crochet, embroidery, felting, sewing, etc.)?

Katie, a co-owner of Warm Hearts Yarn and former elementary-teacher, will be available to help your child during this free open-studio time. Please bring your projects, questions and enthusiasm!

Equinox Sweater: this is a two-session class: January 12th and 26th, 10am-12pm
Fee: $30 includes pattern Instructor: Doris Prokop Limit: 8 participants

The Equinox Sweater is a favorite pattern from Interweave Knits' Knitscene. The entire sweater is knit from the top-down, there is no purling and no seaming. It is the perfect beginner's sweater! Of course, all levels of knitters are welcome, but this is a great project for those ready to move on from scarves and hats. :)

As per instructions from Doris, the best yarn to purchase is that of 50% or higher of animal fiber (wool, alpaca, etc.). This helps with blocking and counteracting the rolling of hems. We at Warm Hearts Yarn are happy to help you find a great yarn for this sweater! All yarn purchased specifically for this class will receive a 10% discount.
