Today's the day you discover a lifelong hobby -- knitting! Learning how to knit is fun and easy with expert instruction brought to you on high-quality video. In this Annie's online video class, instructor Kate Atherley begins with the very basics, such as how to hold the knitting needles and yarn, and progresses you through all the basic stitches, casting on, binding off and easy increasing and decreasing. This class is taught in English-style knitting, but Kate also demonstrates Continental-style. Skills learned can be applied to both English and Continental knitters. Step-by-step, Kate will help you build skill upon skill to learn how to confidently knit any beginner-level pattern.

  • How to cast on your first stitches
  • How to knit and purl
  • How to bind off
  • How to work the stockinette stitch, ribbing and seed stitch

You'll learn all the essential knitting techniques to knit eight beginner class projects including an easy dishcloth, a headband with matching wrist warmers, a water bottle holder, a phone cozy, a baby hat and a scarf.

Great class, great instructer! I had limited knowledge of knitting before, but I wanted to get better techniques by taking this class, and eventually take a more advanced class. I had taken a class before (not on this site) and found the instructor so wordy and boring that I couldn't complete the class! Kate was excellent and held my interest till the end. I have been strictly a crocheter for about 50 years, and now I may "cross over to the other side" and do some knitting!

I have been struggling to learn to knit and have tried books and tutorials that left me confused. I am so glad I found this class! The teacher is wonderful as explains and demonstrates things very clearly and if you have a question she actually responds in a timely manner. I love the fact that I can ask questions and interact with the teacher. Plus the class is here for me whenever I want to do it and I can pause it or rewind or whatever I need! It's like having my own personal knitting tutor!

Just what I wanted I can progress at my own rate no pressure I am retired but my time still seems so short - so many things I need to get done but I want to knit and knit well. This class allows me to learn at my own pace

I bought this for my granddaughter who is 8 years old. I am sure she will learn a lot from this class.

Great class and wonderful instructor! I learned more from this class than I did taking a class at a crafting chain store. I can't wait to begin my shawl project!
