This listing is for the online course only, not an in-person workshop.
This Gift Option does not give full access to the purchaser. To use the course yourself, please see this separate listing
When you buy from this listing you buy the gift, which gives you a voucher code, for a full discount on the price of the course. Whoever you gift this to can use the voucher code to cover the full price of the course.
This way the recipient will have full access. Their email address will receive all course-related emails. The price of the course will only be paid once.
The gift option includes a printable gift card and materials list which will allow you to do two things:
- Print, wrap and gift the card with voucher code.
- Source and purchase all the yarn and needles alongside gifting the course, so your knitter is ready to knit.
Please be aware this requires trust both ways:
- You trust me to deliver the course and
- offer an extended returns policy (see FAQs).
- I trust you to not gift one course to multiple people, or
- to use it yourself alongside the gift recipient.
Who is this course for?
The Novice Knitter: level 1 course is for anyone who would like to learn the very foundations of knitting.
You may be a complete beginner, always wanted to knit and wondered what it was that made your best friend always have a project on the go. Perhaps you’ve seen people knitting on the train as you commute and realise that Audible can only keep you occupied with the next ‘highly recommended crime drama’ for so long.
You may have knitted in the past; maybe you learned as a child, or picked up a few skills 3, 5 or 10 years ago, but need a reminder of the first essentials.
This course will help you pick up your yarn and knitting needles with confidence. By the time you’ve finished you’ll know your DK from your Worsted, your stitch from your row and your knit from your purl.
Why buy from me?
I teach knitting and understand that knitting skills need to be taught and practiced within niches so they can become easier and more automatic.
I have been knitting for almost forty years and have been designing since 2008. I began teaching knitting when my friends at school needed help, and this has continued with friends and family ever since. I’m the one who people ask for help with their knitting, and I have a knack for knowing how to help them move further with their skills into independent and confident knitters.
You can guarantee that when I give a course a title and focus on a skillset and knowledge level you will not be asked to reach any further than the Meets Expectations grade in your OWLS knitting exams at Hogwarts!
This course is for absolute beginner knitters or those who have not picked up their knitting for a few years and need a reminder of the foundation skills.
Secret knitting jargon is included, but only when absolutely necessary! And I give full video support for each item, including fixing any crises which might occur.
The first two items are knitted without the need to read a knitting pattern, (the term used to describe written instructions for making an item- like a recipe for knitting instead of cooking!) I will then guide you through following the pattern for the baby beanie while continuing the full step-by-step video support.
