Teaching since:

Hi there! I'm Emily and I have been knitting for 16 years. As soon as I became proficient, I started teaching my friends and family members how to knit. As a member of my church's knitting group, I have experience helping others with their projects, troubleshooting the challenging bits of patterns, fixing mistakes, and of course, teaching beginners.

I can teach you:

~The basics- casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, binding off
~Finishing techniques - weaving in ends, blocking, seaming
~Advanced techniques - picking up stitches, cables, intarsia, increases, decreases, colorwork, circular knitting, etc.
~Project help - fixing mistakes, reading patterns
~Pattern, yarn and needle selection

I love teaching and sharing the wonderful skill of knitting with anyone who is interested in learning! I hope we can connect!

I was a very beginner knitter when I met Emily a few years ago. She graciously worked with me to teach me about different yarns and stitches. She helped me to gain confidence in reading patterns and patiently corrected my many mistakes.
Emily has such a sweet , loving nature. It has been a joy to knit with her and to get to know her as a dear friend. She has knitted two sweaters and a blanket for my granddaughters as gifts. She is a real blessing and I would highly recommend her as a knitting instructor.

I am an experienced knitter but I am still learning from Emily Hartranft. Working with her is a delight because she has a wealth of knowledge about techniques, her completed projects are professional, she is innovative when making her own patterns or when making recommendations to others, and she is both personable and patient. She makes knitting fun!
