Basics, Basics, Basics (Hand Knitting)
Three Lesson Course by Arenda Holladay.
This excellent course taught by Arenda Holladay (originally authored by
Barbara Scott) can serve as a preview for the Master Knitter Program.
It teaches the proper knitting techniques and basic format you will need
to know as a Master Knitting Program enrollee. Even if you do not
enroll in the Masters Program, you will gain valuable knitting knowledge
and skill. By working small swatches, you will experiment with various
types of edges, increases and decreases. You will become aware of the
importance of gauge and how it varies with different stitches. At course
completion you should understand basic techniques and their uses.
Requirements to complete the course include written materials and
several knitted swatches.
- One: covers casting on, increasing and binding off.
- Two: concentrates on decreases.
- Three: focuses on gauge and stitch pattern writing.
