Knit One, Purl One: 90 min Private Knitting Lessons (All Levels)
Everyone can knit, I promise! From beginners to advanced crafters, I teach 1:1 and tailor a lesson plan directly for your interests/skill level! Before your class, we'll chat about your experience with knitting and what you'd like to learn. Absolute beginners will learn the lingo, how to pick yarn and some stitches: cast on, knit and bind off and, if time allows, the purl stitch! Students should leave feeling comfortable with these basic stitches and the ability to keep practicing at home. What's included: -90 min of 1:1 instruction* -One skein of brand new yarn and a pair of new knitting needles for you to take home -An information sheet with a pattern, instructions, video links and resources *1 or 2 hour lessons, please message me. At least 90 minutes is recommended for beginners. Location: We'll agree to a location in Brooklyn or Manhattan that works for us both. Want to create a knitting party with friends? Let's do it! Please send me a note with your interests and some dates and I'll send you the rates and set up a private class listing. Minimum 4 students, maximum 8 students please. I look forward to meeting you and helping you discover your inner yarn obsession!
I learned to knit about fifteen years ago as a teen in Brooklyn, from a wonderful middle school teacher who eagerly traded in her lunch hours to teach my friends and I how to make handmade crafts. Years later, her passion continues to inspire me to introduce others to the wonderful and satisfying world of knitting and crocheting. In addition to teaching both adults and children for the past two years, I design and operate an online knit and crochet shop called Slope Girl Knits, on Etsy focused on handmade home decor, party gifts and clothing/accessories. I am also an experienced digital media specialist and video producer. Proud member of the Etsy New York Team and Brooklyn Knit and Crochet Guild. Thanks for stopping by!
