101 Knitting 4 “Mug-Rug” Coasters

Two Saturdays, October 1 and 8, 2022

Starting at 10 a.m. for 1 – 2 hours each day

taught by Laura Riley


Class supplies: Teacher will provide yarn and needles.  A $5 supplies fee will cover cost – payable to the teacher.


Class Description: Knitting 101 is returning for those who missed the class last year. This class introduces the beginning knitter to basic stitches and techniques. Over two sessions of roughly 1 and ½ hours each, students will knit, purl, cast on, cast off, increase, decrease, add a new color and block their work.  The class project is the ever popular mug-rug, also known as the swatch. Students will receive a handout with written instructions for making all four mug rug designs, plus a list of on-line knitting resources.  


The class size is kept low so that each student will receive personal instruction as needed.  Minimum is 3 and maximum is 6.

This class is for beginners including ages 9 to adult.  Children must take the class with an adult.


About Laura: One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild in 2008 that pushed me to take up knitting in a more dedicated manner. Many years and another grandchild later, I design and knit hats, scarves, shawls, sweaters and socks for the people in my life.  I blog about my fiber adventures at dailyfiberfun.wordpress.com.
