RiverWinds Gallery at 172 Main St. in Beacon is hosting a class by artist Chris Sanders on Arm Knitting. Participants will learn the basics of arm knitting and complete their own super-soft, chunky cowls during the class. This is ideal for beginners — all you need to get started are two to three skeins of at least 110 yards each in chunky weight yarn (and your arms).

RiverWinds Gallery also sells hand-dyed yarn by artist Kelly Newkirk, so those attending can bring their own yarn or pick some out before the class. A 20 percent discount on yarn will be given to all attendees who purchase yarn that day for the class.

The class will take place 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 31. The cost is $20, and reservations are required, as seating is limited to six attendees. To make reservations, call the gallery at 845-838-2880 or email [email protected]. Credit cards are accepted. The snow date is Sunday, Feb. 1.
