Knitting Basics for Kids
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
