Knitting for Beginners

Location: Astoria
Registration: Not required

If you don't know how to knit and always wanted to learn, get started in this adults only class for total beginners. Dominique will help you learn the very basics of knitting: how to cast on; work the knit and purl stitches; and, finally, how to bind off and finish your beginner's project - a small Teddy Bear scarf or a headband. Please bring size #8 knitting needles and light colored worsted or chunky yarn.

Thank you for your interest in the Friends of the Library at Queens Library.

We currently do not have a Friends group at this location, however, kindly contact the Friends Administrator (friends@queenslibrary.org) to find an active Friends group near you. 

Friends Chapters enrich community life around their community library. You will meet other people who care, and you will benefit your neighborhood by:

• Increasing community awareness and library use.
• Acting as liaisons between community and your library.
• Sponsoring programs that enhance the cultural life of your community.

As a Friend, you will:

• Educate your community about Queens Library’s vital services.
• Contribute your time towards programs and special activities at your library.
• Advocate for better library service to your own community through outreach, legislative contact, and fundraising.
