This is a one session class: Thursday, September 19th, 6-8pm

Open to knitters and crocheters!

Gauge and Blocking: Checking your gauge is necessary if you want projects to fit, but a lot of people aren't sure if they're doing it right. In this class we'll discuss why gauge is so important, the best way to make a swatch, and the rare times when you can get away with being not quite on gauge. We will also practice measuring gauge on a variety of stitch patterns, and go through the process of both wet blocking and steam blocking. This class will be useful for anyone who knits or crochets garments or accessories.

Materials – all optional: Swatches or projects to check gauge, swatches or projects ready to block. If you have them, also bring a small bowl, terry cloth hand towel, blocking surface (blocking mat, blocks, or clean cardboard), blocking pins, steamer or steam iron, measuring tape, blocking wires.

Ages 13+

Please note that the deadline to cancel or reschedule is 48 hours before the class time.
