FIRST QUARTER 2019 CLASSES
Please note our class policies below

Take Two Skirt Class, January 6, 20, February 3, 17, 2-4p, $65 (Pattern by Ann Budd is provided)

Skill level: Intermediate

Required skills: knit, purl

A great wardrobe staple for every knitter! The Take-Two Skirt is worked in a fingering weight wool yarn.  It creates a firm but lightweight fabric. It is designed to have 0-1” negative ease around the waist and hips for a slimming fit.  Four darts shape the hip area; then purl stitches are added between “pleats” to provide flare for the lower edge. Slipped stitches make the "pleats" look more elongated.  Twisted stitches are worked along each edge of the pleat sections for crisp pleat definition.

Instructor: Sherry Smith

Sherry has studied with over 100 national teachers such as Janine Bajus, Debbie Bliss, Amy Detjen, Jean Frost, Sarah Hatton, Sarah Kagan, Martin Storey and Steven West.  She has traveled abroad with Vogue Knitting and other groups to study with many of these instructors and wishes to share her love of knitting with others.

So many sweater patterns in your queue, but just can’t get one on your needles? Conquer the elusive sweater with Melissa Cremer at your side! This two-session class will guide you through the potential pifalls of sweater knitting and get you well on your way to a hand-knit sweater of your own.

McKinney Knittery Class Policies


Our goal is to help enrich every student’s passion for knitting by expanding skills and understanding new techniques. We offer small class sizes to ensure every student receives the help they require. We want every student to go home feeling confident and successful in the new skills learned.


All class fees are due at the time of sign-up and are non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled in which case fees will immediately be refunded. If unable to attend please notify the shop right away. We know stuff happens and schedules can change, so we keep a wait list in the event a class is full and there is a cancellation. If we are able to fill your spot we will refund your class fee. Please observe the dates for each class to ensure your schedule will allow you to complete the class before signing up.


Class fees are for the class only and do not include any materials unless otherwise noted in the class description.


Out of fairness to our instructors, we have a 2 student minimum to conduct each class. Any class that does not reach the minimum within 48 hours of the start of the class will be cancelled and you will be notified.


Please read the skills required for each class prior to signing up. Each class is designed to teach a specific technique and not necessarily the skills required to perform the technique. The dedicated class time does not account for teaching the skills in the list of Required Skills and the instructor will not have time to teach the specified Required Skills. If you have any questions, please contact us before signing up for the class and together we will make sure you are ready to get the most out of the class.


We look forward to seeing you in class and sharing the journey of learning something new and exciting!

Class samples are on display at the shop.  Sign up at the shop or by phone at 469-714-4002.
