Australians are showing a resurgence of interest in knitting recently. Have you caught the urge to knit yet? Here is an introduction to this craft that can take you from an utter lack knitting knowledge to becoming an advanced beginner in four weeks. It is also a great class if you are returning to knitting after a long break. In Week One you will become comfortable working with yarn and circular needles, learn a bit about the history of knitting, and learn to execute basic knit and purl stitches as well as to cast on and bind off in a small swatch before starting a sampler scarf. The Sampler Scarf teaches you to manipulate this basic knowledge to create 10 increasingly challenging stitch patterns including cables and working from a graph. As in learning anything new, the first week will be demanding, but by the end of this 4-week course you will have accomplished skills that can lead you to life-long knitting. There will be homework every week that will help your scarf grow. Along the way you will come to know the health benefits of knitting an added bonus to help us relax in this otherwise hectic world!
