Introduction to Knitting 2: Oslo Hat

Teacher: Kate Smith

$100 for four, two-hour sessions

Do you have a basic knowledge of how to knit and want to learn new techniques? Puzzled by patterns that call for two strands of yarn held together?

Join this class to receive step-by-step guidance on making the Oslo Hat pattern by popular Danish designer Petite Knit.

Topics covered in this class:
  • Understand weights of yarn, and what weight you get when use two strands at one time
  • Calculate how much yarn you actually need when a project calls for multiple strands
  • Combine strands of different bases of yarn (such as mohair and wool) to create a unique fabric
  • How to wind yarn hanks into cakes
  • Swatch in the round - save time and frustration by making and blocking a swatch
  • Choose a size in a pattern, and read a pattern that has multiple sizes
  • Knit in the round on a circular knitting needle
  • Create a professional-looking, triple-folded hat brim
  • Decrease your stitches evenly to shape the top of a hat
  • Use the Magic Loop technique to knit a small circumference (the top of the hat)
Students should already know how to:
  • Cast on (long-tail cast on)
  • Create knit stitches
