Our Great North American Afghan class was so popular in the summer, we've added another section! In this class, you will build your knitting skills one month, and one square, at a time. The twelve squares are designed to give both experienced and new knitters a chance to try skills they may have found intimidating or simply want to try on a smaller scale before attempting a whole garment.
Tuition for this club includes The Great North American Afghan pattern book, and 14 skeins of Valley Yarns Northampton in your choice of colors!
