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.

I really only signed up for the class for my mom. She was supposed to go to a class with a friend, but the friend couldn't attend due to a work schedule change. We sat together and started watching over the weekend. We really appreciated how clearly Kate describes and shows everything. We need to practice the cast on a little more, and cannot wait to get into the dishcloth project! I wasn't planning on learning myself, but I'm having fun too! Thank you (from a die-hard crocheter!)!

I loved this class; it was so easy to follow. I have always wanted to learn how to knit, I can crochet a little but have loved watching people knit, I have been trying to teach my children how to crochet and now I can teach them the basics on knitting.

I cannot believe how quickly I began to knit. The instructions are easy to understand and the ability to repeat at 30, 60 or 90 intervals is a great feature. As a beginner to knitting I found this class to be very helpful. Kate is a great teacher. I can't wait to teach my granddaughter how to knit. I will recommend this class to everyone.

I loved this class! I had tried to learn to knit from other sources but could never seem to get the hang of it. But like others commented. I was knitting in days and loving it. Kate has been most helpful with my questions and is indeed patient. I would recommend her classes to anyone wanting to knit. I also got her class casting on and finishing off class that I refer to often. Thank you so much.

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.
