This is a two-part class. Both sections of the class will automatically be placed in your cart when you select one of the sessions.

Choosing the right needle for your project is the most impactful decision when starting a project, and the one of the biggest determinants of comfort while knitting it. Too often we reach for whatever vacant needle we have that matches the pattern’s suggestion. Knitting needles have evolved to make work easier – if you pair them correctly with the yarn and stitch pattern you’re knitting. Paired incorrectly, you’ll work much harder than you need to. Yet many knitters don’t know what a needle’s features bring to a project and when to choose which. Poor yarn and needle pairing can lead to muscle and eye soreness, and even injury. In this class you’ll use a variety of needles, yarns, and stitch patterns to experience the impact of needle selection. You’ll feel firsthand the amazing difference in comfort and ease of knitting that your needle can make. You’ll understand the ergonomic contributions of any knitting needle so you can choose wisely in all your projects.
