Knitting Essentials Part 1: The Basics
Fri Jul 7 & 21
Welcome to Knitting Essentials! This class is part of a series designed to ensure that our students have the same level of basic skills before moving on to our project classes. They're designed specifically to cover the fundamentals of beginning knitting such that a student will leave the series with the tools to tackle most intermediate projects.
This class focuses on the very basics, getting stitches on your needle, knitting them, and then binding those stitches off your needle. The primary role of this class is to help you develop the muscle memory on the knit and purl stitch that will enable you to comfortably do any other knitting technique.
