Lesson Details

Knitting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I have a passion for knitting and will inspire you to discover the same joy knitting has brought to my life.

Are you a beginner? Don't be scared! My standard curriculum will teach you knitting terminology, how to read a knitting pattern, basic stitches, how to start & finish a project, as well as walk you through the supplies you will need. Next I will help you knit your first finished object that you can show off to your friends, family & even social media followers ;)

So you already know the basics but are looking to improve your skills? Great! I can help you move beyond simple pieces to more complex objects such as socks, hats, sweaters, or anything else you want to make.

Need help navigating the world of knitting patterns and yarn? I can help with that too! From sourcing indie dyed yarn to navigating the patterns online, I'm here to help.

Hi, I'm Abbie and I want to help you discover the joy of knitting! I've been knitting for over a decade. I've always had a passion for creativity and crafting, and my aunt first introduced me to knitting in middle school. When I went to college I didn't have as much time to knit as I would have liked, but dove back in as soon as I graduated. Knitting is not only a creative outlet for me, but I finding it very meditative and practical as well. I live in the Rocky Mountains so I need warm clothes and love slow fashion (I'm learning to sew in order to expand my me made wardrobe). I love to play with color and can't resist a great skein of yarn.

Some of my favorite projects to knit are socks, hats and scarves. I'm also currently enrolled in classes to learn how to tech edit knitting patterns to help designers produce accurate, easy to follow knitting patterns.

Personally, I am a mother to a toddler, rescue dog & rescue cat. I live in Colorado with my family and I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains, kayaking, fishing, camping, crafting and cooking.
