At the end of this course you will be able to knit, purl, cast on, cast off in lesson one. Increase and decrease stitches and some more advanced techniques in lesson two, which will allow you to follow any knitting pattern as well as correcting your own mistakes. This course is designed to make you self sufficient in all aspects of knitting which will give you the confidence to try patterns on your own. The course walks you through a simple scarf then slightly more complicated gloves using two tones of wool for a clearer understanding of the technique. Each lesson covers each technique in a clear and concise way.

Professional software developer, amature knitter. Ive been knitting since i was 7 years old and I love the satisfaction of creating something you can wear or use. There's nothing quite like having someone ask where you bought something and you tell them you made it yourself. Ive taught countless people over 30 years and want to pass these skills on to as many people as possible.
