With LIVE virtual classes covering everything from brioche to yarn-over patterns, our teachers, both those you know and those you will know, are here to take your skills to the next level! 

10% of all net proceeds will go to the It Gets Better Project, which has partnered with Hat Not Hate for its 2020 campaign. This donation will be made in memory of Knit in the Pit founder and Virtual Knitting LIVE guest and friend Jon Giswold—Hat Not Hate was a foundation that was close to his heart. 
It Gets Better Project is a nonprofit organization with a global mission to uplift, empower, and connect LGBTQ+ youth, who are especially impacted by bullying. Click here to see all their efforts. Hat Not Hate, an anti-bullying campaign, was launched by Lion Brand in 2018, and they encourage people to make, wear, and post handmade blue hats, adding #HatNotHate when sharing on social platforms. Please help in supporting these organizations by donating blue hats here or making a donation during registration.
