Stitch Pattern of the Month

Second Tuesday of every month    2-3:30 pm


As long as people have been knitting, they’ve been combining knit and purl stitches in different ways to create hundreds of patterns. Each month we choose a different pattern to master and knit into a square—a fun way to expand your knitting repertoire. Once you’ve made enough squares, we’ll show you how to crochet them together to make a baby blanket or afghan. Join any month.
