Experience: All levels, including beginners, are welcome! If you can do the knit stitch, you can make these beaded wrist warmers.
Beginner: 1 skein of Cascade 220 (or equivalent worsted-weight wool) in a medium or dark color, size 5 straight or circular needles (see homework)
Intermediate: 1 skein of Koigu (or equivalent fingering-weight wool) in a medium or dark semi-solid color, or equivalent fingering weight wool yarn, size 1 straight or circular needles (see homework)
Advanced: 1 skein of a fairly heavy lace-weight wool yarn, something that has some body and is NOT cobweb weight, size 000 needles (see homework)
Everyone: crochet hook same size as needles or close, basic knitting toolkit, needle nose pliers (optional)
Homework: CO 30 sts and work in garter stitch for about 3 inches. Make sure your stitches are tight and the fabric is firm. If they are loose and the fabric is soft, try again with smaller needles. Bring the swatch to class.
Class size: Maximum of 24
