It can be a lot to think about all at once, but in this new course, Learn to Knit: My First Hat and Glove Set, instructor Lauren Riker helps you make all of these decisions to get you making stylish and knit gloves and hats right away.
Lauren is the perfect person to lead you down the road to a lifelong craft you will love! She started Girly Knits, where she shares patterns and tutorials “for hip chicks,” like all of us.
