Beginning Knitting (Continental style) with Sonya Johnson



Class Description:  Students will learn the LTCO (long-tail cast-on), the knit stitch using the Continental method.  We will also go over types of knitted fabrics and basic terminology and abbreviations used in knitting.  PLEASE NOTE:  CLASS MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF 2 STUDENTS; IF CLASS MINIMUM IS NOT MET, REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE REFUNDED, and student has the option of scheduling a 1-hr. private lesson ($30/hr) by appointment instead.  

Cost:  $30 (includes $5 registration fee; balance of $25 to be paid to instructor at time of class).  

Experience:  None needed - this class is for beginners.  If you are a crocheter, and have wanted to learn to knit, this is the class for you, since the yarn is held and tensioned in the same hand.
