About the event

Fridays May 10th, 17th, & 24th from 6-8PM 

We're casting on knits for your little ones! Spring/Summer is the perfect time to knit baby garments. They're easy to transport around and are great motivators because they'll knit up so much quicker than the adult garments you're used to making! We love this Ruffle Romper from Knitting for Olive. There are a few style variations, short sleeve onesie, long sleeve onesie, short sleeve dress, and long sleeve dress! 

When you register you will receive an automated email with information about the class, including a coupon code for 10% off your yarn needed for your project * (needles excluded from discount). Please check your spam folder if you don't see it, and be sure to save it so that you can refer back to it later.

Prerequisites: Participants should be confident in basic knitting skills, including casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off. We'll help you with the rest!


  • Choose which version & size of the pattern you'd like to knit.
  • Select a fingering weight yarn for your new project. We are always happy to help you make selections!
  • If you have time, it is so helpful to have your gauge swatch finished & blocked and brought to the first class. Gauge swatches will help us choose the best size for your garment, and will also ensure you love the fabric that you are creating! We know they're not the most glamorous part of knitting, but they're so important even if you tend to knit on gauge.

Materials to bring along:

  • 547 - 1640 yards of fingering weight yarn
  • US 1.5 and US 2.5 (or size needed to achieve a gauge of 28sts and 38 rows = 4" after blocking)
  • Ruffle Romper pattern by Knitting for Olive
  • darning needle
  • stitch markers

*Your 10% off coupon will only apply to those skeins purchased for your project, additional yarn & supplies will not be eligible for savings. Loyalty points will not be eligible for use (only 1 discount in use at a time, discounts cannot be stacked).

From casting on to weaving in the ends, when you purchase a class at the Bloomin' Spindle, we will support you until your sweater is complete. After May 23rd feel free to continue to join the table on Fridays during store hours. Alternatively, you can join us on Thursday KAL nights or Wednesday Stitch Nights.

We welcome young knitters 16 and under in private lessons accompanied by an adult guardian.  Please call the store for available times.
