Essential Knitting Skills for Beginners

Description

Round out your knitting repertoire with skills and stitches that set you up for success with more intermediate projects! Join instructor and designer Caddy Melville Ledbetter and build the bridge that will take you beyond beginner knitting. This class is the third installment in the "Learn to Knit" series for knitters who are ready to go beyond the basics. Start class by adding a variety of popular cast-ons to your toolkit, including e-wrap, knitted, long-tail, cable and crochet. Caddy will show you how to make pattern-reading simple, create a gauge swatch and conquer common mistakes such as dropped stitches. You'll learn how to knit ribbing, cables and even basic lace as Caddy demystifies charts. Plus, she'll show you how to join a new ball of yarn to your project, and how to finish all of your knits neatly and beautifully!
