Are you tired of knitting the same scarves and hats? Do you long to start on a cardigan, socks or even a sweater, but get lost among the abbreviations and technical terms? Are you frustrated by having to rip out all your hard work and starting over again because you don't know where you were in the pattern?

This class is just what you need to move forward in your knitting journey! Let instructor Patty Lyons teach you how to not just knit, but to read your knitting. When you've learned this imperative skill, it's easy to identify where you are and what you need to do next for whatever pattern you choose to do! Patty will then go on to teach you the ins and outs of patterns so you'll never get lost again! After watching this class, you will be able to not only read a pattern, but to master it as well!

In this video class you'll learn how to:
  • Do simple and more advanced increases and decreases
  • Read a chart
  • Read your knitting
  • Join a new ball of yarn
  • Weave in your ends
  • Follow a pattern
Class includes complete instructions to make two projects: Increase & Decrease Swatch and Read Your Knitting Sampler Scarf.

I wish I learned from her first instead of teaching myself through those how to knit books. Now I understand what she meant to be a mindful knitter. I am not done with doing a quick review of the class, but I can see it is packed with stitches for me to learn. I am glad I am still a beginner. I can correct myself and not just stick the needle into the hole and wrap the yarn whichever way without thinking.

This is such a great class!! I learned a lot, it was fun, and I ended up with a cool scarf! I've already signed up for more classes with Patty Lyons!

I am taking a class on this video. I live in a retirement village in Arizona and the group is called Knit one Crochet 2 in my class is about 11 ladies learning to read a pattern. I am not an experienced knitter so the class was over whelming for me so when I came home I learned the stitches and finished my swatch.

Being an experienced knitter, many of the things Patty taught were reviews or reminders of things I do. What I liked. thought is that Patty explained the whys of some of those things that I have done for 60 years, such as twisting a stitch. I never knew exactly why I did what I did. I definitely would buy another Patty Lyons video class, as a matter of fact, I have all the ones offered by Annie's which feature Patty's teaching just because of her great wealth of knowledge about knitting. With so much emphasis on crocheting, it's refreshing to see her passion for the traditional skill of knitting.

I was not happy with video. I didn't learn what I expected to learn from this class. I expected to learn to read stitches and master the pattern. It was not organized either. I am very disappointed with my purchase. I probably won't buy another video from Annie"s.
