How much is a knitting class?
While the exact cost of a knitting class will vary depending on the class offering, type of lesson, and material costs, you can expect to spend between $30 and $80 per class. Most of our classes/courses are project-based, and everyone works on the same pattern; these classes cover new techniques and do not include materials. We offer a 10% discount on materials when you take a class with us.
Can I learn knitting by myself?
Anyone can learn to knit on their own! It doesn't take some unique crafting gene, and you don't need superhuman talent to learn. You need a set of needles, some yarn, and most importantly, the desire to knit! We do believe that professional instruction can help get you off to a great start. You might eventually figure out specific techniques or better ways to do things on your own, but little guidance from a more experienced set of eyes will help you try new things and gain confidence throughout the process.
How do you become a better knitter?
Whether you are a knitter with a decade of experience or a beginner knitter about to start their first project, revisiting the knitting fundamentals can help you become a better knitter. We believe there are ten things everyone should be mindful of to become a better knitter:
1. Select quality yarn
2. Use a needle that is recommended for the yarn weight
3. Change needles to achieve a tighter or looser gauge
4. Pick the suitable fiber for the project
5. Try to relax and knit
6. Finish your row before putting it down
7. Add new yarn at the beginning of a new row
8. Practice makes perfect
9. Knit with friends, join a club or find a community
10. Your patience will be rewarded
How long does it take to become a good knitter?
It only takes a few hours to learn the mechanics of knitting to cast on, learn basic stitches, and bind off. By the time you have completed a project or two, you should be able to see progress and knit evenly. If you dedicate just a bit of time each day, your knitting will become even more. Of course, if you have a friend or a good instructor who can guide you, correct mistakes, and help you when you get stuck, you will feel more confident.
