10 ESSENTIAL CAST-ONS & BIND-OFFS with Afifa Sayeed

SUNDAY, 10 am - 12 noon |

Different types of knitting projects need different types of edges--some edges need to be stretchy, some extra-sturdy and others decorative. Various edges are achieved by working different cast-ons and bind-offs. In this class, you'll learn 10 essential casting-on and binding-off techniques step-by-step, and also learn when to use each one.

Cast-on techniques include: long-tail, cable cast-on, backwards loop, I-cord and provisional cast-on; bind-offs are standard, K2tog bind-off, picot, I-cord and three-needle bind off.

Level: Beginner; must know cast on/off, knit and purl stitches
$35, plus supplies.



Ongoing

We do our best to help you any time you come with project challenges–if you need more focused attention, or want to be sure someone will be available to help, the Drop-in sessions are for you! We’ve recently added more sessions, and limited participants to 4 people to be sure you get the attention you need.

Drop-in Knitting & Crochet Help
Every Wednesday 3 – 4 p.m.; 1st & 3rd Sundays, 1 -2 p.m.

Hit a rough patch in your pattern? Made a frustrating mistake? Our expert advice will get you back on track. $10 payable to Uncommon Threads.

Private Lessons
Time slots available:
Wednesday, 10 a.m.– 3 p.m.
1st and 3rd Sunday, 2 – 4 p.m.

When you need to learn or refresh a technique, demystify a complicated pattern or revive a “vintage” project, private lessons are the best choice. Sign up for one-on-one sessions with Sara, half-hour minimum. $15 half-hour, register in advance.

We’re making the switch to lighter-weight yarns and fibers as the weather gets warm! Our classes offer great inspiration as well as technical support and encouragement for your more challenging works in progress.

Registration for classes requires full payment. Please call the shop (650-941-1815) or come in person to register. Class size is limited. Sorry, no refunds on class fees; no make-ups are available for missed classes.
