Daniel Yuhas learned to knit as a college kid nearly 20 years ago, and the obsession has grown ever since. He believes that knitting is fundamentally good for the universe â€” every stitch we knit is an act of creativity, and loves it when his role as a teacher is to encourage that spark of creativity in his students. Daniel's first book, Knitting from the Center Out, came out in the Fall of 2012. Daniel lives and knits in Portland, Oregon.

Saturday 8:30 am - 11:30 am
465-3 Intermediate Revolutionary Knitting
Knitting from the center out is a 'revolutionary old technique' for making just about anything. Working on double-pointed needles and beginning with just a few stitches, our work will grow outwards with each spin around the needles. In this class we'll learn the disappearing loop cast-on and knit a beautiful pinwheel pattern.
What you begin in class could become a coaster, a holiday ornament, a hat, a baby blanket, a pillow, or a tableclothâ€”the choice is yours!
Saturday 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
464-3 Intermediate Lace and Loop Scarf
This complex asymmetrical scarf will have you daydreaming about corkscrews and roller coasters as you follow the twists and turns from start to finish. Gravity-defying loops of I-cord wrap around the neck, while a spreading bell of simple lace dangles below â€” as fun to wear as it is to make! We'll cover basic lace techniques and I-cord in class.
Sunday 8:30 am - 11:30 am SOLD OUT
462-3 Advanced Eternal Knot Baby Blanket
Have you heard of traveling cables? These cables travel so far the fabric can't contain them! This sumptuous and thickly patterned baby blanket creates the illusion of a knot woven into itself without end. We'll also learn a sanity-saving technique for correcting miss-crossed cables. With lots of loops for little hands to hold onto, the completed blanket will make a wonderful baby gift. Students may also continue the sample we work in class as a scarf.
