This is part two of my Knitting 101 video series. In part 1 I covered creating a slip knot, and the Knitting-On Cast On. If you are not familiar with either of these I encourage you to go back to Part 1 and watch the videos offered there.
These videos were created for the students of my Knitting 101 class at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts in Tulsa, OK. My intention was to give all of my students a one click resource they can come back to so they can practice and improve their knitting skills at home, available 24/7.
However I am offering them freely to you here. I welcome you to follow along with this series, and learn to knit as well!
This first video is a longer more in-depth version, showing the difference between the English and Continental style of knitting, how to hold and tension the yarn in the English/American style, and how to form a Knit Stitch in the English/American Style.
This video is 27 minutes long, and is designed to be more in-depth for those who need a little bit slower pace to firmly grasp the concept.
This video is only approximately 5 minutes long. This offers a quicker visual review of how to hold and tension the yarn and form the English/American knit stitch. It is less in-depth, and meant for those who understand the concept but need a quick reminder of how to do it.
PARENTS!!: While the videos are ok for children to view. Please do not let your children watch my videos or any YouTube video unsupervised. I can not control the videos that are recommended in the side bar, and I would hate for your child to click on an in-appropriate video out of curiosity.
I hope these videos help you begin your knitting journey!
Until next time, have a StitchTastic Day!
