Beginning Knitting & Beyond
Experience Level: Beginner
Instructor: Lisa Sewell
Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm / September 8th & 15th
In this six-hour workshop we'll cover all the basic techniques. We'll make a sampler to learn different methods of casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, seed, ribbing, increasing, decreasing, and binding off. You'll learn both English and Continental methods, how to use double pointed needles, and how to correct mistakes. This course will also cover types of yarns, and needles, how to read a pattern, different styles of sweaters and the importance of checking your gauge. The goal of this class is to provide students with a strong base and command of knitting so you are confident in beginning a project.
*Materials Needed: US #8 needles & suitable yarn.
