Want to learn to knit or looking to expand your knitting? Building Blocks is a series designed to grow your knitting skills. Beginning in September of 2017, Common Thread will be offering this year-long series of classes designed to teach and improve knitting skills. This series is based on the pattern book of the same name by Michelle Hunter. Every pattern in the Building Blocks book focuses on the development of a skill, all while knitting a lovely square. Building Blocks introduces important knitting techniques in a systematic way, helping move the new knitter beyond the basics. Skills learned in making each block build upon the skills of the previous block, allowing the knitter to gain assurance and mastery. Each class will offer tried and true tricks to aid the new knitter in avoiding common pitfalls, while learning to effectively read the pattern.
There are so many options for the blocks you will create. Single blocks can be used as a washcloth. You can make one large blanket or 2 smaller blankets. You can make the project all out of one color or use multiple colors. Blankets can be made for students going away to college and knit in school colors. The possibilities are endless!
