In this ongoing private knitting class for beginners, kids will learn the basics of knitting such as how to make a slip knot, how to cast stitches onto their knitting needles, how to make different knit stitches such as the garter stitch and stockinette stitch, plus more! Here are some guidelines of what I plan to teach each week, this list as well as the supplies list for projects will be updated as the class goes on so you know what to expect: - Week 1 <Topic 1: Slip Knot, Cast On and...
Students will learn basic knitting skills such as how to make a slip knot, how to knit and purl rows to get different stitches, how to sew pieces of their project together with a yarn needle (also known as a darning or tapestry needle), and also how to stuff certain projects with stuffing.
Supply list needed each week: -A pair of knitting needles (US size 8) (5mm) -A skein of size 4 worsted weight acrylic yarn in any color (Note: For beginners, lighter colored yarn is easier to see the stitches.) -Scissors -A yarn needle (also known as a tapestry or darning needle) Supply list for project 1 (Monster Stuffed Animal) (See thumbnail): -A pair of knitting needles (US size 8) (5mm) -A skein of size 4 worsted weight acrylic yarn in any color (Note: For beginners, lighter colored yarn is easier to see the stitches.) -Scissors -A yarn needle (also known as a tapestry or darning needle) -A row counter (This is used to count the rows of your project. Some paper and a pencil can be used to keep tracked of rows as an alternative.) -Stuffing (cotton balls also work as an alternative) -Fabric glue or any kind of glue that can stick fabric together (I used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue for this project.) -Squares of felt in desired colors for details
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, students will be using knitting needles, yarn needles, scissors, and other things that can be potentially sharp. You are more than welcome to help or supervise your child off camera if at any point they need help or if you are concerned they might injure themselves. **Note to the parents: Knitting can is a craft that requires a lot of hand and finger dexterity as well as a long attention span. I know each child works at a different pace, has a different attention span and their own level of dexterity. Because I don't know your child, their attention span, the pace they work at, or their dexterity level, it is up as the parent to decide by looking at the thumbnail and the description if you feel this class is too difficult for them. If needed, you are more than welcome to assist your child off camera should a step be to difficult and/or they need help.
