The perfect next class for the student who has mastered knits
and purls and wants to do more or for anyone who wants to
learn how to knit in the round. In the first week we will focus on
the differences between knitting flat and in the round and the
tips and tricks for not getting tangled up or twisted. Students
will cast on their hat. In the second session we cover the
shaping and finishing that turns your tube into a hat.
