Beyond Knitting Basics with Jo Dunsmuir - Saturday June 19th



The beautiful Guernsey Wrap is a perfect first garment for beginner knitters. It is a textured wrap or large scarf that has patterns made up of knit and purl stitches. Knit in Aran weight yarn, you’ll see quick progress. 

In this class you’ll learn how to read a knitting pattern, work a tension square and
 measure guage, and learn to read a pattern chart. 
You will be beginning this wrap in class and have needles, pattern, and enough yarn to complete this garment at home.

Instructor Name:
Jo Dunsmuir
Instructor Bio:
Jo is the creator and owner of Frankie & Ray, a little business that began life as a
vehicle for Jo?s handmade clothing designs sold at design markets, small independent
stores, and online.
Jo learned to knit when very young, taught by her German born Oma (grandmother),
who passed on the ?picking? technique, sometimes known as the European or
Continental knitting style. This technique has the yarn held in the left hand, which never
leaves the needle to create both knit and purl stitches, resulting in a quick and efficient
way to grow your knitting.
Jo hopes to pass on the pleasure of the meditative and mindful process that knitting is.
The enjoyment is amplified by the satisfaction of creating many useful and beautiful
hand knit garments, for yourself, or as an expression of love for others, whether they be
shawls, socks, scarves, beanies, jumpers, cardigans, or even objects for the home, like
a tea cozy or blanket.
Knitting is a skill acquired by practice and repetition, but at the heart are just two
stitches, knit and purl, applied in many different ways to create a boundless variety of
objects.
