Been knitting for donkey years but even though I have seen it done on TV I never knew how to do a long tail cast on. Whenever it was demonstrated it was too quick for me to take it in properly. Also, I never realized that you could use different methods for different projects and thought it was just personal preference or whatever your mother taught you. Picked up a few other hints about casting off but it was worth doing the class just to learn the long tail cast on.

Although a long-time self-taught knitter, I found information in this class, such as the cable cast on, using a larger knitting needle in cast-offs very good. In teaching my granddaughters to knit, it is great to have these skills at hand and visual lessons.

Hi, I have only seen the introductory video but I am wondering if anyone can tell me if the knitting method in this video is also showing the Continental style of knitting, since I am a Continental knitter and am not familiar with the English version. Thanks.

Inge - This class uses the English style only.

I'm a beginner knitter and I'm pleased I took the time to do this class. It's very easy to understand and importantly, just as easy to do. My confidence as a knitter is growing along with my skills. A definite must for anyone.
