Do you want to learn how to knit? If you already know the basics, do you want to improve your skills? If so, this club is for YOU! The thought of picking up needles and yarn may seem intimidating. But don’t worry! I promise that it’s not as difficult as it looks. In fact, once you get the hang of it, knitting can be a fun and relaxing activity. I will cover all the basics, including how to hold your needles and yarn, how to cast on and bind off, and how to do the knit stitch. Knitting is the process of making interlocking loops of yarn with needles to create fabric.By combining the two basic stitches – the knit stitch and the purl stitch – in different ways, the knitter can create various textures, such as ribbing, cables, and lace. Knitting is a relatively easy craft to learn. Even if you have never knit before, you can learn the basics in just a few hours. Once you learn the basic stitches, you can create all sorts of projects, from simple scarves to more complex sweaters and blankets. If there is interest, I can also teach the basics of crochet. This club will also be a fun way to connect with other students who share a similar interest to you. If you have knitting needles (size 8mm preferably) bring them to the club meeting. If you don’t have needles, don’t let that stop you from joining, I can get what you need.
