I recently taught a Beginning Knitting class at my favorite brewery – Grandma’s House – and had such a fun time with these ladies!
Everyone (every single person, no knitter left behind!) learned how to cast on, knit and bind off during the first week’s class in which we knitted a little scarf perfectly sized for your favorite beer bottle.
The second class the following week the students were able to refresh their cast on and knitting skills while also learning how to purl and work a simple decrease. At the end of this lesson everyone had made a matching hat to fit the beer bottle that was now scarf-adorned!
I’ll also be teaching an intermediate class later in March that will produce a hat so that students can learn to knit in the round and work various stitch patterns – and still walk away with a finished project! That’s the best part of any class, in my opinion – something to show for your efforts.
