Class Experience

Students will improve their fine motor, mathematics, and social skills as they learn and practice:
     • Holding their knitting needles
     • Making a knit stitch
     • Casting off (decreasing stitches)
     • Making a swatch in garter stitch
     • The meaning of "swatch" and "garter stitch"
     • The diference between rows, stitches, and stitch patterns
     • Interacting with other, young knitters
I have been knitting since 2013 and have been in love with it ever since. I have taught several of my friends how to knit and have even written my own patterns. I look forward to seeing your learners grow their confidence in this new skill.
Students are welcome to practice their new skills outside of class, but it's not required.
• A pair of single-pointed knitting needles (The ones with a point on one end and a stopper of some sort on the other end, NOT the ones with points on both ends.) • A skein of yarn in any color • A pair of scissors ___________________________________ I recommend the knitting needles be no smaller than 3.0 and no larger than 4.0 for beginners. (The size can usually be found on the blunt end of the needles.) Please also keep in mind that wooden or bamboo needles are easiest to start with, while metal needles are more slippery and difficult. I also recommend the yarn have a weight of 4. The weight of the yarn - the thickness of it, - can be found on the back of the wrapper. It will be a small picture of a skein of yarn with a number on it. Most Red Heart yarn is size 4. You should also avoid glittery, glossy, fluffy, or dark-colored yarn at first, as it is more difficult to work with.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be using scissors to cut yarn. Younger students and students with difficulties that could make this a danger to them should have an adult closeby for assistance. (Please remember that Outschool policy requires parents and guardians to stay out of view of the camera.)
I will also be using a Canva slideshow to break down all the steps and information we'll be learning so it's easy to see, but no account is required as I will be sharing it in a screenshare.
