Free knitting classes to be offered in Plymouth

Wednesday, Aug. 23, 1 p.m.—PLYMOUTH—Free knitting classes will be offered at the Plymouth Community Center by Barbara Wanamaker Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and again on Aug. 30 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Students will need to purchase yarn and needles to bring with them to the first class. U.S. size 7 or 8 bamboo needles and one skein of a medium weight yarn in a light to medium color so stitches are easier to see, are recommended. The wooden needles work slower and are easier to handle for beginning students. Experienced knitters can bring a project in progress or whatever they wish.

The first class will be an introduction on how to read patterns, then moves on to basic stitches, starting the group off with basics to start a simple project. The next week, the students can bring back their work and assistance will be given with any problems and questions answered. Patterns using stitches they learned in the first class can be introduced as well.

RSVP to bewanamaker@gmail or 802-396-0130. Plymouth Community Center is located at 35 School Drive, Plymouth.
