Learn to Knit (Second Offering)

  • Maiwa Loft #6-1666 Johnston St. Vancouver, BC Canada (map)

With NaomiBelle Rozell

$75 [Includes $25 lab fee] class limit 15. Apr 9, 2019 (Tue 6:30-9:30pm).

This three-hour evening workshop is perfect for beginning knitters. Anyone new to knitting, who has forgotten how, or who never quite grasped the concept of casting stitches onto a needle will find themselves in the right place.

The very basic elements of knitting will be explored: casting stitches onto a needle, executing knit and purl stitches, and binding stitches off. Instruction will be given primarily in the English style of knitting; however, the Continental style will also be explained and demonstrated.

Practice is the only way to become proficient and aids greatly in the overall enjoyment of the craft. To facilitate this, a cowl pattern that incorporates everything learned in the class will be provided.

Students interested in progressing further are encouraged to register for Knitting:  Basics and Beyond.

About NaomiBelle Rozell

NaomiBelle Rozell cannot recall a time when creativity was not part of her daily life. Although she works with many types of crafts, most of her days are taken up with knitting and sewing.

NaomiBelle’s knitting has evolved over the years. Currently, she is interested in process, spending a good deal of time exploring the knitted stitch and all of its variations. She finds projects such as socks and shawls to be a great canvas for exploration. 

Her sewing too has evolved over the years. At this point, the emphasis is on hand-sewing. There is something really lovely and meditative about sitting with a bundle of beautiful cloth in one’s lap with needle and thread in hand. 

On Saturdays Naomi can often be found in Maiwa’s Supply Store on Granville Island.
