LEARN HOW TO KNIT & CROCHET
Want to learn how to knit? You enjoy our knitting tutorials online but you need to be guided by a flesh-and-blood knitting instructor? Would it be to learn the basics of knitting for beginners or find a more specialized knitting explanation? You will find in our knitting lessons a method to learn at your own pace according to your tastes and interests. Our teachers have the expertise to help you with all your projects:
- Knit socks using the traditional method or on circular needles, starting with ribs or toes, one or two socks at the time, double heel or heel in shortened rows, lark!!
- Knit the colours in jacquard using the Norwegian or Intarsia knitting method.
- Knit the twists following a grid, with or without twist needle (yes, it can be done that way!!)
Are you a beginning knitter? Do not be intimidated: our teachers love teaching novices and all knitsters, even the most seasoned have all started from the beginning! Our knitting instructors will suggest an easy knitting pattern for beginners.
So you will have the opportunity to learn at your own pace how to knit a scarf or how to knit a sweater. You choose the project and you are helped to knit it.
In the stimulating atmosphere of our yarn shop, the world of knitting is not rocket science...even if we use "magic wands"!!
In our knitting lessons, each student chooses his/her project according to his/her interests and objectives. Places are initially reserved for students who have registered for a session and then the remaining places are allocated to students wishing to enroll in an à la carte course.
In order to maximize class time, students are encouraged to select their projects and materials outside of class time. Here are some online resources to find free knitting patterns and more: Ravelry and, of course, the section of knitting patterns to downloadin here in our catalog of patterns online.
