Discover a lifelong hobby -- knitting!
Learn how to knit with Jayne! Total of two sessions.
We begin this technique course with the basics, such as how to hold the knitting needles and yarn, and progress you through all the basic stitches. This class is taught in the English-style of knitting (controlling the yarn with your right hand). Step-by-step, you will learn the skills needed to confidently knit any beginner-level pattern. You will be provided with some beginner patterns which you will be able to knit after the last session.
In this class you'll learn:
- How to tie a slip knot,
- How to cast on your first stitches
- How to knit and purl
- How to bind off
- How to work the garter stitch, stockinette stitch, and rib stitch
During class we will discuss yarn weights and fibers, knitting abbreviations and terms, knitting tools, and how to read basic patterns. Students will be provided with 50 grams of worsted weight yarn and US size 8 knitting needles. A minimum of three students is required.
*Lefties: If you feel as though your handedness may be an obstacle with learning to knit from the left needle, which mostly stays still, to the right needle, your working needle, please give us a call at 410-662-9276.
