Knitting for Crocheters
Many crocheters get frustrated when learning to knit, but the continental (picking) style of knitting is almost identical to the motions of crochet. In this class, students will start casting on and knitting with a crochet hook before transitioning to knitting needles. Learn to cast-on, bind-off, knit and purl continental style, while making a washcloth or set of coasters, and a pair of fingerless gloves.
