The Master Hand Knitting Program 1
Share |

The Master Hand Knitting Program was announced in the Fall 1987 issue of Cast On as a way for members of The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) to have their knitting evaluated using specific criteria and guidelines. It was designed as an educational process, not a competition or contest.

We encourage all knitters who are interested in learning more about their chosen craft to participate in the program. The program is not for brand new knitters, but for those who want to improve their skills. TKGA offers correspondence courses for knitters who are interested in learning to knit.

The Master Hand Knitting Committee is made up of knitters
who have completed all three levels of the program. Several serve as co-chairs who summarize the other committee members' evaluations and write the final evaluation to each knitter. The letter evaluates the work and makes concrete suggestions for improvements. Your work is not criticized, it is critiqued. The co-chair will most likely require that work be redone before the level is passed.
