Spinning, Knitting, and Crochet instruction


Beginning knitting

Whether you’ve never knit before or it’s just been a long time, you’ll get a solid foundation of knitting fundamentals with Beginning Knitting. You’ll learn to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and bind off.

Cabling with a needle and reading charts

It looks like Greek to me!  Reading cabling charts can be a challenge, but once you know the basic structures you'll be able to read the designs and make the charts come to life.

Intarsia or Picture Knitting

Color knitting where the design created is completed in color blocks rather then alternating two or more colors in one row.  This is also sometimes called picture knitting as the design created often creates a picture (e.g. a flower, face, cat, truck, etc.)
