A 4 Knitting
Knitting is known to provide many benefits: it can calm the nerves, keep the mind active, provide achievable goals, and keep boredom away! This course will cover the basics of knitting technique in a few different styles. For new knitters, basic stitch patterns will be introduced including garter, stockinette, rib, seed, and moss stitches. Participants will be encouraged to knit swatches to measure their gauge, and choose from a range of projects suitable for their level of skill and time commitment. Individual projects can include beginner-intermediate patterns for scarves, shawls, vest, socks, hats, and blankets. Linda will assist as needed with technical issues - how to hold the needles ergonomically, how to read patterns, how to keep track of rows and stitches, how to selvedge (for sewing knitted pieces together), and how to fix and prevent some of the more common mistakes.
