3 kittens university (3ku)

UWelcome to 3 Kittens University!

3 Kittens University (3KU) is a series of classes for any student who has already taken a beginning class. These skill building sessions will help you sharpen your skills and bring your hobby to a whole new level.

In the Fall of 2013, we are introducing 3KU for Knitting and 3KU for Crochet.

Your skills will advance by leaps and bounds as you learn the elements of fine knitting or crochet. 3KU will help you change from a ‘person who knits/crochets’ into a ‘knitter/crocheter’ as you learn when, where and why to apply your newly discovered skills. Create garments that fit better. Make informed decisions when you are presented with options within a pattern. Learn to read your knitting/crochet and improve the look of your finished garments.

We will continually be adding classes to our 3KU format, so you will have a wide variety of topics and teachers from which to learn. We have scheduled 3KU classes in all skill levels. Some of the classes will be repeated more than once during the year – so don’t worry if you can’t sign up for one right now.
