Knitting classes will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. every Monday in April at the Franklin Community Center and Heritage museum.
Classes will be open to knitters of all skill levels. Beginners will learn the basics of cast on, knit, purl, bind off, an increase and a decrease.  Initial learning projects will be two dishcloths. There will be a discussion of combining basic stitches for patterns, and there will be a scarf pattern to practice. Beginners should plan to attend all four sessions if possible.
Other knitters who wish to come may bring questions or any project they would like assistance with.
Cost will be $10 for the entire course. This does not include supplies, but free patterns will be provided.
Beginner materials needed are one of knitting needles, US size 7, 8 or 9,  which should be brought to the first class. Needed for the first two projects will be one ball of smooth, light-colored cotton yarn, worsted weight — not acrylic.
Needed for the scarf project are 250 yards of smooth, worsted weight yarn in a light color. Any fiber is all right. Yarn can be purchased after the first two classes.

Those wishing to sign up for the class should stop by the Franklin Community Center and Heritage Museum between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, or call 620-347-4220.
