Introduction to Loom Knitting

  • Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply 170 Park St. Bangor, ME 04401 (map)

"My name is Amanda Dunphy and I have lived in Maine all my life.  I picked up loom knitting about 9 years ago when a friend saw how much I was struggling with needle knitting and bought me my first looms for a present.  I learned by watching YouTube videos at the time, and struggling, because there was no one I knew of who could teach me.

 

Looking back on those days I wish there was someone who would have been able to watch and guide me through the process.  I hope to be that guide for you.  Since those early days I have made hats, scarves, wrist warmers, bags, bottle cozies, head scarves, slipper socks, cowls, dish cloths, soap bags, pouches, stone/dice bags, some clothing, holiday stockings and ornaments, etc. 

 

In the class I will be teaching a basic cast on, knit and purl stitches, and a simple bind off method.  We will also touch on reading patterns, as well as tips and tricks I have learned over the years.  We will be making a thin scarf (approximately 5 inches wide, but that can be adjusted) done in the basket weave stitch.  I will provide you with the pattern and explain how you can make this wider for you as well.  During the class we will be simply making a swatch so you can practice and learn all the steps required."

Cost: $30.00
