(Advanced learners may proceed to creating purl stitches for knitting and double crochets for crocheting during the first class.)
How many classes are needed to learn?
Three classes are often a good start for learning to knit or crochet. During these three classes you will gain a solid understanding of how yarn is created with a variety of fibers. You will learn how to read yarn labels and choose the right tools.
Knitting students learn to cast on, create the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and how to bind off. During this time knitting students will also learn how to combine knit and purl stitches to create patterned stitches (i.e. garter stitch, stockinette stitch, and seed stitch). Knitting students will learn how to “read their knitting”.
Crochet students learn to make a foundation chain, create a single crochet, a half double crochet, and a double crochet stitch. Crochet students learn about chain stitches and turning their projects. They will also learn the anatomy of a stitch to create a variety of patterns (i.e. front leg, back leg).
Do you teach kids classes?
Kids ages 8 and up are welcome to join any learn to knit or crochet class. Parents are encouraged (but not required) to sign up and participate in class along with their children so that they may help at home with projects.
