Description

Class Experience

Learners will develop knitting skills, an understanding of the knitting process, and will experience the confidence and satisfaction that arise from creating a beautiful, functional project.
I'm an avid knitter, and I love teaching young people to knit!  I have taught an after-school knitting club for teens, and I've taught 6-year-olds to knit, as an integral part of the Waldorf curriculum.
A suggestion is given for learners to complete a six-inch section of knitting each week, so as to be ready to try a new stitch pattern in the following session.  This may take up to four hours per week.  After Week 6, all the stitches have been introduced, and knitters have completed half the length of the scarf.  Another section of each pattern remains to be knitted, in reverse order for the second half of the scarf.  A full-length scarf has 11 sections in all.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Learners will need: - 1 pair knitting needles; suggested size is 8 US (5.0 mm) - Yarn; suggested yardage and weight is 350 yards of worsted weight wool blend yarn (320 m), in any solid color - Copy this link to download our knitting pattern, for free: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beginners-stitch-sampler-scarf?set=&_rfoff=1 *Yarn notes* - 'Worsted weight' refers to the thickness of a strand of yarn. A thicker yarn can be used for the scarf, however extra yardage will be required. Please check the ball band label for the needle size that matches the yarn weight. - 100% pure wool is easy to work with, due to its elasticity, and will create a luxurious, warm scarf. - Thick yarn is easier to work with than thin. - Wool blends or other fibers are suitable for the pattern, provided that the yarn weight matches the needle size. - Please message the teacher if you have any questions about materials.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Grownups, please remind younger children that knitting needles and scissors are tools; not toys.  
With their sharp points, they must be handled and stored safely.
The teacher referenced "A First Book of Knitting for Children," by Bonnie Gosse and Jill Allerton, in planning instruction for this class.
