Students will be required to wear masks to attend this class.

Everything you need to know to figure out all those tricky numbers issues you encounter in your knitting. We’ll focus on how mathematics fits into pattern reading—counting and working and keeping track. We’ll cover how to understand and work challenging instructions like “Decrease every 8 rows 10 times” and "Increase 12 sts evenly distributed across the row.” We’ll talk about calculating yardage in partial balls of yarn, and how to ensure you’re buying enough yarn for a project. We’ll also have a discussion of gauge and what it really means—and how to deal with it if you can’t match. Suitable for newer knitters, and those who wish to get more comfortable reading patterns—it's all about conquering your fear of the numbers and making you a more powerful knitter!
