New Knitters' Very First Class

New knitters learn the slip knot, casting on, knit stitch, garter stitch, and binding off, as they knit a square coaster or doll mat.

Description

Class Experience

Learners develop knitting skills, an understanding of the knitting process, and experience the confidence and satisfaction of crafting their first-ever knitted square.
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 children as young as six years to knit, as an integral part of the Waldorf curriculum.
EACH LEARNER WILL NEED: - 1 pair knitting needles--short, thick needles are easiest to use. - A skein or ball of thick yarn--knit stitches in light or bright colors are easiest to see. - 100% pure wool is easy to work with, due to its elasticity. - Wool blends or other fibers are also suitable. - Scissors for snipping the yarn end after binding off - Please message the teacher if you have any questions about materials.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Grownups are asked to caution learners against using pointed tools--knitting needles and scissors--as playthings.  
Younger and impulsive children may require adult supervision while using these tools.
The teacher referenced "A First Book of Knitting for Children," by Bonnie Gosse and Jill Allerton, in planning instruction for this class.
