Always wanted to learn to knit but thought it would lake too much time and money? Well have I got a deal for you!
I will teach you to knit, step by step, for free!
How will I do that you ask? Being an experienced knitter and teacher of knitting, I can guide you through the learning process all in the comfort of your home. All you will need is to sit in front of your computer and tune into my Youtube channel.
I have even included a perfect pattern for you to start with, and once again its free!
Saddly, you will need to go out and buy yarn, knitting needles, a darning needle, scissors and ruler if you do not already have those. I have suggested some in the pattern, but feel free to use whatever you have and adjust the pattern accordingly.
ball of worsted weight yarn in any color
US size 9 needles
measuring tape or ruler
the size will be about 4-5 stitches to the inch, so if you want bigger or smaller gloves, add or subtract from the pattern. You will only be learning to cast on, knit, then cast off with this pattern, but I will teach purling in future patterns.
Cast on 30 stitches as shown in video
knit across every row from beginning to end as shown in video
cast off when length measures 5-6 inches, depending on the size of your hands, as shown in video
be sure to leave a long tail to sew sides together.
fold “fabric” in half and sew one end to the other for 4 inches
weave yarn in on one side for one inch, then continue to sew sides together for last inch.
weave in end.
repeat this for the second glove, good practice and makes a cute set!
