Knitting Basics for Kids

Location: PB-7

Students will learn basic knitting skills such as knit and purl stitches and proper technique of handling needles. Each student will complete 2 projects by the end of the session. Yarn will be provided for the first project, a light scarf. Students will need to purchase their own yarn for the second project, an open knit shawl. Knitting has been found to help children learn to focus, develop their fine motor skills, follow instructions, complete basic mathematics, problem solve and more

September 9 - November 4, 2017, Saturdays

Instructor: Catherine Southern
Catherine Southern learned to knit about 18 years ago and hasn't stopped since. She has been teaching community knitting classes for over 4 years. Cat loves to design, knit and sew her own clothes, and has recently started selling her creations at a Hilo boutique.

Required: Circular (any length) or straight (at least 12'' or longer) knitting needles, size 13 to 18; 2 skeins of specialty yarn for second project (will be discussed in class).
