Kids Classes

Knitting with Kids

Learning to knit at a young age is a lifelong gift. You and your child will learn the basics of knitting while creating a lovely washcloth. We recommend age 8 and up (younger kids really don’t yet have the hand dexterity, but may enjoy finger knitting).

Class cost is $25 a session per kid. Classes are scheduled when there is interest at a time that works for both you and us! To contact the store about interest in or questions about the class, call 828-253-2750 or email us.

Materials to buy (at Purl’s): Size 7 or 8 needles, light colored worsted weight wool yarn.

Teacher Rik Schell, one of the store owners, has taught kids of various ages many things and loves having knitting be on the list.

FACE COVERINGS REQUIRED to be worn by all, regardless of vaccination status, per new CDC guidelines.

Teacher Rik is vaccinated but will wear a mask when teaching children not yet eligible for vaccinations for their protection.
