Matching Cast Ons and Bind Offs with Ann Budd VIA ZOOM!
RESCHEDULED TO NOV 18TH, 2022

Learn three stable and elastic cast-ons and their matching bind-offs. These techniques will give you the same look at the cuff of socks knitted from the toe up or top down, the hem and neck edges of sweaters, the two edges of a circular cowl, and the two ends of scarves. 

Techniques include Crochet Chain Cast-On/Standard Bind-Off; Invisible (Tubular) K1, P1 Rib Cast-On/Invisible (Tubular) K1, P1 Rib Bind-Off; Channel Island Cast-On/Channel Island Bind-Off. 

An illustrated handout of the various techniques will be provided. 

If you’d like to practice the techniques demonstrated, you’ll need worsted-weight yarn, size U.S. 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles, size G/6 (4.25 mm) crochet hook, tapestry needle, and three homework swatches.


THIS IS A ONE TIME LIVE ZOOM EVENT at 6 pm Eastern, 5 pm Central, 4 pm Mountain, 3 pm Pacific.  This class will be recorded and you can view it for 1 week after the event.

Grand Canyon Hat with Nancy Bates VIA ZOOM!
December 2nd, 2022

A great hat class for newish knitters, but still fun for everyone. Learn how easy it is to knit in the round while reading a chart and switch colors with this colorful but easy design. You'll even learn a simple technique for jog-less stripes. And, we'll touch on gauge, blocking, and decreasing along the way.

Embellishing Your Knitting with Nancy Bates via ZOOM!
December 9th, 2022

Learn how to add that extra dimension to your completed knitting with embellishments such as free style embroidery, French Knots, duplicate stitching, and even buttons or beads. What fun! It's easier than you think, yet it adds so much. These are techniques used after your project is complete, not while you are knitting.

How it Works


"The class worked really well over Zoom. Stephanie did a great job of demonstrating the techniques needed, and had two cameras going so we could see her face and her hands while she was teaching. It was nice to interact with the other class members, too." - Cheryl A.

About Online Classes with Longmont Yarn Shoppe

We have identified a number of classes that lend themselves to being offered in a virtual classroom via Zoom.  

Knitting Classes and KALs via ZOOM

Crochet Classes and CALs via ZOOM

Tapestry Weaving via ZOOM

Needle Felting Classes via ZOOM

Our teachers are very knowledgeable and experienced in the topic they are teaching, and will be using 2 cameras for all classes (there may not be 2 cameras for KALs and CALS) so you can not only see and hear them, they can also demonstrate what they are teaching as well.  Supplies must be shipped in advance of the class so please plan accordingly.  

We recommend all students use a device larger than a phone to be able to see what is being taught.  

We stand behind our programs. If you try online learning and decide it isn’t a fit, we will refund 100% of your class fee, or it can be transferred to an in-store class once we are open to the public again. 

We do ask that you use yarn and products from LYS for our Knit/Crochet-A-Longs and our classes.  

There are 2 reasons for this:

  1.   We recommend yarn we know you will have success with. Learning a new skill is much more rewarding using the proper tools and resources. When students use materials other than what is suggested we can't assure your success.
  2.   Frankly, we exist only with your support. We need our community to shop with us so we can be here for the long haul. We bring in additional inventory to support classes, in anticipation of student purchases.
