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.

This is a good class, and the tutor is very good.
One of the reasons I bought it was that the reviews mentioned continental knitting, sadly there is very little about continental knitting on the video. Maybe it could be made clearer in the class description.
However I'm glad I bought it because it's very useful (once I understood how continental and english knitting relate to each other). This class is actually much better than the one I bought somewhere else specifically to learn continental knitting, I would definitely recommend it to any beginner English knitter. If only I had found a class covering the same topics and as well taught for continental knitters who are absolute beginners!
Technically, the quality of the video is good, but Annie's classes are hard to navigate. I don't seem to be able to go back easily say 4-5mins easily, it would be useful to have the menu divided in smaller sections.

Love this class! Kate Atherley is a fantastic teacher! She teaches clearly, slowly and very easy to understand! I do not know how to knit, and after taking this class, I know how to catch on, stitch, purl stitch, seed stitch, increase and decrease, and bind off. She is very helpful!

I did a little knitting years and years ago but never progressed very far. When I saw this class I thought I'd give it another try and am glad I did. The video, and especially the 30, 60, 90 second repeat feature, is a great learning tool. I am very happy with the class and the instructor and will look for more classes in the near future.

Kate Atherley is a fantastic teacher. Over the years I've bought how to knit books galore and could never make heads or tails of them. I had to make a kind of complicated fox cowl for a friend's granddaughter for Christmas and because of this class the project came out practically perfect. It looked as if a pro made it instead of a novice. Whenever I had a question for Kate I received an answer the very next morning. This class made doing this project fun instead of scary. I've been into crochet for 26 years, and now because of this class I can love the craft of knitting. Very grateful to Kate and Annie's for this new skill I have.
