Welcome to Learn to Knit: First Scarf course! We are so excited to have you here as you dip your toes into the world of knitting.
In these videos, you’ll learn the very basics of how to start knitting:
- long tail cast on
- the knit stitch
- bind off
- Using these new skills, you’ll knit a garter stitch scarf to keep you cozy. We’ve included a free pattern for this garter stitch scarf here!
If you run into any trouble, we’ve included a troubleshooting video to help and you can always chat with us in the school’s forums or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are here to help and support on your fibre arts journey!
You’re going to make your first scarf! Right here, with this simple one worked only in the knit stitch, you’ll end up with a garter stitch scarf to be proud of.
