I took a knitting class at a local shop. I have not even finished this video and have learned so much more. I love it! I love Kate's style of teaching and the fact that she allows the student to 'learn' the perfect feel for holding the needles and yarn. Kate speaks clearly and concisely. I hope she has or will offer more classes teaching more advanced stitches and patterns. I now know I can learn this craft at home rain or shine!

Rita, Kate shows how to use both the English and Continental methods of knitting, but she, herself, uses the English method.

I'm trying to learn as many different crafts as possible and have purchased several of the Annie's classes. This is the first one I felt like I needed to do a rating on. Don't get me wrong, the other classes were helpful. I watched the class before I started, after just viewing the class I felt confident and excited. I am actually knitting now!!! I really hope Kate makes more levels of knitting classes, I would get everyone. Kate promised several times that you would be able to do this and she was right. Awesome teacher!! Totally agree with all the other reviews.

This is an excellent basic class for beginners who want to learn about knitting. Even as an advanced knitter, this class has some very helpful hints and suggestions. The ease of presentation and understandability makes this instructor among the best I've had. I highly recommend this class and instructor. Thanks.

I just finished watching Learn to Knit with Kate Atherley. I so enjoyed her teaching style and the comprehensive instruction that she gave step-by-step. I especially loved the pleasant attitude of Kate, she was a joy to follow along with. I look forward to seeing more knitting classes and especially classes with Kate Atherley.
