In this lesson, students will learn how to switch between a knit and purl stitch in the same row, start learning the very basics of reading knitting patterns, and make a small swatch from a pattern.

Class experience

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.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
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.
