In this lesson, students will continue to build their knitting knowledge by learning how to switch between knitting and purling within the same row, start learning the basics of reading a knitting pattern, and knit a small swatch from a pattern! This is a fun and relaxed series of classes to introduce young learners to the world of knitting. I've listed the different sections as one-time classes so learners can easily join at whatever point they may already be at and move on to the next...
Students will improve their fine motor and mathematics skills as they learn and practice how to switch between knitting and purling within the same row, read beginner knitting patterns, and use that pattern to make a swatch in rib stitch. 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 • A skein of yarn in any color • A pair of scissors • [Optional] A yarn needle
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.

The pattern we will be using will be provided in the slideshow, and a copy of it will be in the pdf that will be available in the classroom page after class.
