Purl Scouts: Beginner Knitting for Middle Schoolers - Lesson 3

In this class, we will continue to build on students' newfound knitting skills by learning how to purl and make a swatch in stockinette stitch, as well as discussing tinking and frogging (two ways of undoing).

Class Experience

Students will improve their fine motor, and mathematics skills as they learn and practice casting on, casting off, knitting, purling, and making a swatch. They will also have a chance to improve their social skills as they interact 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 • [Optional] A yarn needle (not a sewing needle)
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.
