I have been working with knitting and crochet since 2004. I am a craft yarn certified knitting and crochet instructor and have been teaching professionally since 2010. This includes locations such as Michaels Arts and Crafts as well as Bedford Stuyvesant Collegiate Charter School.
As my student, you can expect to learn basic through advanced skills crochet skills, including making a slip knot, single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, how to make a granny square, crocheting in the round, and how to read patterns. In knitting, you will learn the skills of casting on stitches onto the needle, the garter and stockinette stitch, how to knit in the round using circular or double pointed needles, and how to read patterns.
No matter what your level, my goal is to make you feel confident and experienced enough for you to complete and create your own projects. Knitting and crochet are my passions and I am excited to help you reach your crafting goals. I look forward to working with you!

Very polite, knowledgeable, and very patient with me! Great instructor!
Knowledgeable, easy to follow, and nice.
Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor.Show More
