Have a specific project in mind, or just want to pick up a new skill? Beginner level students will learn basic stitches and yarn properties. Starting projects will be selected from a variety scarves, hats, and small toys (referred to as amigurumi). More advanced students can choose to learn socks, gloves and to modify patterns, and eventually create their own. Knitting needles and yarn can be provided for a small extra fee, or a materials list will be provided for students to purchase their own supplies.

About Molly
Raised in New York city, I attended Stuyvesant High School, the jewel in the crown of the NYC public school system. Traditional academic achievement was not enough for me however, and I went on to study fashion design, honing my artistic skills at Drexel University. Call me a renaissance woman or a Jill-of-All-Trades, I've been employed in fashion houses, graphic design firms and visual effects shops. I've also made my way freelancing as a photographer, web designer, and writer. In addition to this variety of creative skills, I have a Bachelors in Business Administration, and training in Quickbooks. I recently scored a perfect 170 on the GRE verbal, and obtained admission into several competitive doctoral programs in Clinical Psychology.

I realize it is not enough to merely have skills or intelligence in order to be a tutor. One must
be able to convey them to the student in a way that is effective and (hopefully) enjoyable. From the helping students prepare a portfolio for undergraduate admission, to teaching the basics of essay writing, I have a warm attentive attitude that sets students of all ages at ease. My teaching style is focused on the learning style of the person I am working with, tailoring the exercises to help achieve specific goals.

Molly is an outstanding teacher! She helped me learn Adobe Illustrator and now I am using it constantly! She was so easy to work with- flexible and very patient. She even helped me with a project that I was working on and was stuck with! I cannot thank her enough!!

Molly was understanding in scheduling conflicts and worked with me so we could get our lessons done. She made sure that I understood each thing that we went over and gave me homework that helped me get some practice in that I needed. I made a blanket for my sister who just had a baby and it is a wonderful keepsake!

Thanks Molly!

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Katy this afternoon. She was able to put me at ease right out of the gate. She is very knowledgeable and is able to communicate the fine points clearly and concisely. The time passed quickly and I walked away with a new understanding and appreciation for the skill required. If you are in need of instruction in knitting I can think of no one better.

What would you like to learn? Basic stitching or specific techniques? Learn how to use Ravelry. Get help with a current project. Are you left-handed? Bonus! I teach righty or lefty as needed.

Make a list of “Things I Want to Work On” and we can put together a great lesson plan and schedule. Here are some skills and techniques to think about to get your list started. Ask me about anything else, if you don’t see it here:

Stitches and Techniques –
• Basic or advanced stitches
• Lace and openwork increases and decreases
• How to read charts
• Knitting in the round
• Tubular cast on
• Beading to embellish projects

Math Made Easy -
• Reading the Yarn Ball Band for yarn weights and hook sizes
• Gauge and substituting yarn
• Tackle your niggly math questions

About Ellen
Whether you want to begin knitting or crocheting, or already love to, there’s always something new to learn. I love all aspects of knitting and crochet - color, texture, and creation. And I love sharing all this with my students. I personally enjoy the math of it, and can help make it easy if math is not your “thing”.

Would you like to learn basic skills, hone current ones , or enhance your experience with new techniques? If you're in the middle of a project and need help, or have specifice technique(s) you'd like to work on, consider booking a 15 minute class, or a series of them.

Choose from these subjects, or tell me what you’d like to work on:

• Reading the Yarn Ball Band - Why the information on it is helpful and important
• How to use Ravelry - A knitting community full of useful information
• Fiber Math…Yes you can
- How to understand gauge and yarn weights/quantities.
• How to Read and Translate Charts
• Help with a Current Project – Understanding a pattern, technique, or correcting a mistake
• Knitting Lace and Openwork Basics – How to do increases and decreases
• Bead Crochet – Crochet necklaces and bracelets, or embellish knitting or crochet projects with beads.
• Hyperbolic Crochet – For those that love math or want to learn how to crochet curves from a flat surface (think of coral, or the edge of a curly lettuce leaf like kale)
• Your wish list of knitting or crochet skills…

I have been teaching since 2012 and am available to teach lessons online and in NYC. I learned teaching skills from some of the most loved and respected teachers in well-known stores, teaching venues, and events. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals, and have fun while we work together. As an added bonus, I teach both right and left handed as needed. Do you need a time, place, or topic not listed here? Just ask. We can probably work something out.

Enrich your fiber crafting experience. What would you like to learn? Contact me and let’s get started.

Experienced teacher for 10 years, beginning to advanced levels. One customer said: "I am so pleased with my first class and am looking forward to part 2 next week! Brooke is very patient and has excellent communication and teaching skills. Within 5mins, I was able to walk myself through the steps of the knit stitch and even correct errors! Brooke was right there with me, but allowed me the opportunity to think through the steps I had just learned."
I have published knitwear designs with Vogue Knitting, Knitter's Magazine, Creative Knitting, as well as my own books Lovely Knitted Lace, More Lovely Knitted Lace, and the soon to be released Simply Shetland. Beginner knitters will be able to cast on and knit a scarf with a 1-hour lesson.

I own a knit shop, Kirkwood Knittery, where I have taught thousands on beginners to knit, as well as advanced knitters techniques to improve your skills.
