Mother and Daughter Take the WEBS Expert Knitter Program Together

What is an Expert Knitter? An Expert Knitter needs only yarn, needles and measurements to construct hats, mittens, socks, and sweaters of various types. An Expert Knitter has acquired the knowledge to master additional techniques independently.

In addition to our regular class offerings, WEBS has developed a program leading to certification as a WEBS Expert Knitter. Our goal is to provide our students with the skills an Expert Knitter must possess by means of a varied, interesting, and comprehensive curriculum. We have designated a total of fifteen classes/workshops as Core Requirements. There will also be three required electives, one in knitting and one in each of two other disciplines such as crochet, weaving, spinning, etc.

A Capstone Project will be the culmination of the program for students. This project will require students to utilize the skills they have learned to design, knit and finish an original sweater in pieces from measurements. For this final project, students will be assigned a mentor for support, consultation and advice. The final project will be reviewed by a committee and, if accepted, the WEBS' Expert Knitters Certificate will be awarded.
