What you'll learn in this knitting class:

Dorset Buttons to match your knitting!

Learn to make Dorset buttons, an antique method of button making originating in England in the 17th century! Using plain rings and yarn or thread, create beautiful buttons to add to your sweaters, decorate a cowl, or fasten a shawl!
In this class you will learn a little bit of the history of Dorset buttons, the techniques involved, and you will make 2 buttons - one plain and one beaded. 

All materials will be provided, including yarn, tapestry needle, rings and beads.  

However, if you wish to make your buttons with your own yarn, bring 4 yards of Fingering weight yarn for the plain button and 3 yards of Sport/DK/Worsted yarn and 12-16 small beads for the beaded buttons.
