Lesson Details

Knitting

Levels Taught:
Beginner
You don’t have to be an expert knitter to create beautiful projects! My lessons are for beginner knitters.

With me, you will learn several stitches that are surprisingly easier than you may think! Some of the included skills learned will be:
Knit stitch
Purl stitch
Garter stitch
Wrap and turn
Decreasing and increasing stitches
And more!

Combining these basic skills will give you a basis for creating multiple pieces. I teach on straight kneedles.

Let’s have fun knitting!

Hi! My name is December and I am a 28 year old lover of music and crafts!

Music was instilled in me from a very young age with piano lessons, and I grew up playing the piano, flute, and singing in choirs. I graduated from Grove City College with a degree in vocal music, and always looked forward to teaching piano and voice lessons during the summer months. My students appreciate that lessons are fun and worthy of their time. You will not walk away from a lesson without new knowledge and skills!

In my spare time, I usually have some craft in hand. Knitting has become a favorite hobby of mine, and being mostly self taught, I love helping others discover how easy and rewarding it can be!

My goal is to help you have fun while practicing your skills, and to learn something new and attainable at each lesson. Lessons will be based on your current skill level and will increase in difficulty based on your own rate of learning. I believe that learning should be fun, rewarding, and purposeful. I am very easy going, but also want to help hold you to the standard of learning that will help you advance your studies.
