The Knitting Room will be closed on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 23, but will reopen at 7am on Black Friday!

November’s workshops are designed to jump start your Christmas knitting. Let us help you prepare some of your holiday gifts with some quick and creative hat designs.

All of these hat workshops are free of charge, just purchase your materials and bring your needles to get started! November’s workshops are designed for those who know the basics of knitting and knitting in the round. Whether you prefer magic loop or DPNs, the choice is yours!

Declan’s Hat – Sat. November 4 from 10am-12pm: This is an easy unisex cabled hat for everyone. Enough patterning to keep you interested, yet easy enough to do while watching TV.

Irma Hat – Sat. November 18 from 10am-12pm: This hat is a simple knit, created from the bottom up, but features a fun zig zag design.

The Vermonter
– Sat. November 25 from 10am-12pm: A classic vintage style ski cap complete with a playful pom-pom. Knit in super bulky yarn this is a quick and satisfying knit.
