Beginner Knitter Series
How we teach knitting has evolved over the years. Sue has had two standing classes each month and she discovered that everyone looking for a beginning class does not need the very beginnings. So she created a series. Students can pick and choose the classes based on their current skill sets. The patterns are included in the price of the class.
Beginning Knitting 101: Gauntlets
In this class you will learn the very basics -- how to cast on and the knit stitch. As soon as you have the gauntlet finished you will get a reminder on casting on and how to purl. And you finish with a matching set of fingerless mitts.
Beginning Knitting 201: Welted Cowl
In this course you will get a reminder on how to cast on with the addition of how to work in rounds, read a pattern, and track your rows. And you get more practice with both the knit and purl stitches.
Beginning Knitting 301: Basic Beanie
Now you get to put your skills to the test. You will again cast on in the round and now work knit and purl stitches in the same round. You will also learn how to work decreases as well as how to work on double pointed needles.
Beginning Knitting 401: Lace Headband
Sue takes it up a notch with a small project. You will learn to make mirrored increases, follow a chart, work a lace pattern, mirror decreases, and a single row button hole. All in a small headband!
