This course will explain how to choose the correct yarn and needles for a project, as well as how to read a yarn label. This will be followed by learning how to cast on, the knit and purl stitches and finally how to bind off. Included in the course materials is the pattern you will need to follow along. The course is designed to be followed chronologically, so that each lesson builds upon the information from the previous lesson. A combination of videos and slideshows are included to show step by step procedures as well as the demonstrations in real time. Two methods for knitting are taught, English and Continental; finally binding off and finishing will show you how to complete your project. Upon completing the course, you will have knitted a scarf of your own! You will also now be able to move on to bigger projects and more complex patterns, you will have all the fundamental knowledge and skills to become a knitter for life.

Mechanical engineer, experienced knitter, and master crafter.I have been knitting and crocheting for years and I love all types of crafts. There is something about creating something for someone from start to finish, there's really nothing quite like that feeling. I often encounter people that see something that's been made and they immediately say "I wish I could do that.", and I always say "You can!" My ultimate goal is to try to make that wish a reality for people, there are so many amazing tools and projects out there, all you need is a little time and patience. I still remember how excited I was when I created my first project and I want others to feel that same accomplishment, you CAN learn to knit and paper craft and you should!
