This time, however, they wanted to do something new: something new for them, and for me: a Learn To Knit class.
Teaching beginners is something I've done a lot in stores, but to do it over a video class required some thinking. How to best convey the motions and the tactile nature of the experience, in a video? It was a fun challenge, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.
The class includes everything you need to kick off your knitting adventures: casting on, the knit and purl stitch, stitch patterns like ribbing, stockinette stitch and seed stitch. Along the way, we work 6 easy and fun confidence-builder projects, including a dishcloth
a great shawl
and this headband and wristwarmer set.
Have a friend or family member who wants to learn to knit? Get them to learn from this class, so you can focus on your own projects...
