Class Details:

Many knitters avoid knitting in the English style—even switch to another style because they think it's inefficient. The truth is, it's a very efficient method, but it's being done wrong by most of us in the twenty-first century. This class is a deep dive into the original techniques and landmarks of English knitting, what we've done to make it seem inefficient and slow, and how to undo or modify those faulty variations. Knitters will learn to knit more efficiently and more comfortably with this class. Note beginners are welcome but this is not a learn-to-knit class for first timers. Knitters must be able to independently cast-on, and make knit and purl stitches in the English style.
