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.

Patty is so thorough she answered questions I did not even know I had, that I suddenly realized I had been wondering about in other contexts for years. I feel like I am getting an advanced degree in knitting and totally relishing the learning every step of the way. This class is a phenomenal value!

What a great teacher! I have 2 of her classes. I learned so much from her. Out of all of the classes I have, hers are the best! She explains knitting like no other. I look forward to learning more about knitting from her!

This class if great fun. The increase and decrease swatch is excellent practice and I feel so much better about reading charts. I am enjoying the scarf pattern and have improved my accuracy in complex (for me) stitches. The ability to watch as stitches are made on the video is perfect for the visual learner.
