Beginner Knitting


Melissa Caines

Class Description:

This is an online zoom course for absolute beginners or those still working on basic skills. You will learn to cast on and cast off, knit and purl, combine stitches into patterns, and correct mistakes. Two projects provide opportunities to practice and refine your new skills–a ribbed scarf and a basic hat worked in the round with circular and double-pointed needles. Join this course and learn to knit in a fun and supportive environment.
