5 week course

Beginner Knitting 1: Potholders

Course Overview:

In this beginning knitters class, we will learn the basics of knitting. Students will learn to cast on, start a knitting project, and the knit stitch. Our goal is to master these skills and make a set of pot holders.

Course Outline:

Students will begin by learning how to cast on. Cast on is a technique for adding new stitches that do not depend on earlier stitches. All knitting begins with casting on.

The knit stitch is the most basic component of knitting, forming the basis of most projects. It is considered the building block of knitting.

In this class, students will master these two techniques and create a set of pot holders.

We will use Rauma Yarns Petunia, a cotton yarn made with Pima cotton which is a high-quality cotton yarn.  It is available in 57 colors, so the possibilities for great color combinations are there.  I do not currently carry all the colors in my store, but I can order by request.

The class will meet 1 1/2-2 hours once a week for five weeks.


  • 8-10 hours of professional instruction
  • 2 skeins of yarn
  • finished set of 2 potholders
