RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED
Because we strive to bring you the best quality yarns at the most reasonable prices and select the proper yarns to be used for your class/project, should you bring a yarn not purchased at Ramona Country Yarn Store for your class or project, there will be a $5.00 "Yarnage Fee" to help allay the costs of the class. Thank you for understanding.
"Great American Aran Afghan" Class
And, as if you weren't already learning copious skills with "Building Blocks" and "Building in Color" classes, we will be taxing your brain a bit more with the ongoing "Great American Aran Afghan" project class to make the most exquisite Aran-knitted afghan (think Fisherman's knit sweater)! This is one you will want for yourself as each design is intricate and beautifully designed. This is a continuing once-a-month knit along the first Thursday of the month during Open/Knit Crochet, from 6-8 pm. The pattern is free each week when you purchase the yarn from us. Help and coaching available, and you will have one month to complete each block. There are 24 blocks total to do, 20 for the afghan and 4 for pillows. Yarn suggested is Cascade 220, Berroco Vintage or Cherub Aran in elegant cream colors, or any worsted-weight yarn in color of your choice.
No need to register for class – just show up and join at any time!
Classes listed below are offered on a regular basis. Dates and times, and project classes will be announced on our Facebook page, newsletter and calendar.
