Learn to Knit from an expert knitter
“I’m no good at knitting.” “I don’t have a creative bone in my body.” “I’ve tried, and failed, at learning how to knit in the past.” “I just couldn’t figure it out.” “I don’t have the patience for knitting.”
Have you ever said any of these things to yourself before? If so, you’re in the right place. When I first tried knitting, I thought I didn’t have the patience required to knit. My arms flapped around like a chicken, the stitches were hard to get into, the fabric was stiff as a board.
It wasn’t until I tweaked just a few things that I was able to go from struggling beginner to an expert knitter, and I’m here to help you make that same shift.
If you’ve always thought you’d never learn how to knit, you’re dead wrong. You just have the wrong technique, materials or teacher.
Does this sound like you?
- You’ve always admired the look and feel of knitted garments, and wished you knew how to make your own
- You swear you don’t have a creative bone in your body, but have secretly always wished you knew how to knit (or crochet, or sew, etc.)
- You’ve tried learning how to knit in the past, but never got it all the way under your belt
- Online learning is a struggle because you’d rather have someone in front of you to literally show you the “right” way to do it
If you said yes to any of these, then I’ve got the perfect class for you.
I’ve been knitting for twelve years and I’m a teacher by trade. I love to help others take something they found difficult and break it down in a way that is understandable for them.
When I first learned to knit, I struggled as well. I’ve tried books, pamphlets, and online courses on my quest to become a knitter. Along the way I learned that not only was I “doing it wrong” (for myself, everyone’s technique is unique to them), I was using the “wrong” materials (again for myself).
What will my classes help you accomplish?
- We will work together to find the technique, materials, and learning process that works the best for you.
- Are you left-handed? Right-handed?
- Do you prefer straight or circular needles?
- How do you hold the yarn?
- Do you do best with English or Continental style?
- Are you a one-on-one learner or do prefer to work with a group?
- We will learn the very basics and make sure they are mastered so you won’t have to constantly seek out a reference guide to help you with casting on, the knit stitch, or the purl stitch—these three things are the foundation of all knitting.
- You will have that feeling of accomplishment because you will begin with a small project that can be completed in a short amount of time.
