Join Nadine Borovicka or Nancy Baur (our Athens-based Knitting Goddesses) to learn how to knit the Barley Hat by Tin Can Knits. This pattern is available for free at Ravelry.com (requires free registration to the site) and has several size options to fit everyone. Check the pattern to confirm the amount of yarn you will need to complete your hat.

The hat is knit in the round from the bottom up, so students will learn to cast on and join for in the round knitting.

Nadine and Nancy will explain the difference between techniques for knitting in the round and will teach how to read patterns with multiple size options.

Students should bring their own needles and yarn (or you can purchase yarn for class at Rabbit & Rocket).

Nadine Borovicka and Nancy Baur have been teaching knitting classes together since 2016, but knitting together for much longer than that.  Their knitting and teaching styles differ, but complement each other to provide a wider range of techniques and experiences for their students.

Depending on the size of your hat, you will need 100 – 200 yards of worsted weight yarn, size 6 16-inch circular needles, size 8 16-inch circular needles, size 8 DPNs. (If you’d like to use the magic loop technique, you will need size 6 40-inch circular and a size 8 40-inch circular needles.)

COVID Safety Precautions for this Class
We are easily able to provide lots of distancing between students for this class, are sanitizing the space between guests, and have a medical grade HEPA air filtration machine in place. For the near term, we are requesting all our guests wear masks during classes. We’ll take a few breaks so you can enjoy some mask-free time on our patio. We don’t know the personal circumstances of all our friends – some may have people at home they need to be mindful of – so we’re choosing to be helpful to all – especially our community’s first responders and medical workers. We have super lightweight, disposable masks you are welcome to use. If you are medically unable to wear a mask, let us know and we will work with and welcome you!

Complete the form below to request this Private Class for a minimum of two people. If it’s just you, we’re happy to receive an Open Class Request to kick off a class others can join with you.
