April KALs & CAL

** What is a KAL or CAL?? **
KALs (knit-alongs) and CALs (crochet-alongs) are free project-based groups that occur on certain days throughout the month. They are very informal, meaning that you may start at any time throughout the month. In addition, you can work at your own pace. We offer these knit-alongs to bring the knitting community together and help knitters to expand their skill set. We highly encourage participatory individuals to purchase materials at Knit One so that we can support our instructors and keep these events free of charge.

Mistakes – we all make them, but knowing different ways to fix them can help you become a more confident knitter, as well as saving you valuable time!

If you want to get over your fear of mistakes, this is the workshop you’ve been waiting for! Class size limited to 6. Using smooth, light-colored yarn in worsted weight or larger, please come with the following small swatch on your needles to use during class: cast on 10 stitches and work 6 rows in stockinette stitch.
