I have been a passionate knitter for over 35 years and have taught many students the joys of knitting. I am a professional knitwear designer and love sharing my skills with eager learners.
Knitters will be encouraged to continue practicing the stitches they have learned in the current week’s lesson. They will be expected to work on their projects in the stitches they choose for at least 2-3 hours each week.
- at least two colors of medium weight yarn, approximately 200 meters each color, depending on number of colors and size of project
- knitting needles size US 8 or US 9
- cable needle (if desired)
- tapestry needle
- scissors
Informal assessments will be given each week at the beginning of class as students show the progress in their work. They will be given extra instruction as needed to correct any tension issues or mistakes.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Scissors will be used in this project, please supervise your child if necessary when using this sharp tool.
All source material will be provided in class in the form of a pdf pattern or link to a video tutorial.
