Become a more informed and proficient knitter. Acquire a better understanding of stitch anatomy and fabric, try new working methods (English? Continental? Combination?), and add more tools to your skill and technique toolbox. You’ll learn several ways to cast-on, how to join new yarn and weave in ends as you go, and some simple seaming techniques. With a better understanding of your knit fabric and ways to produce it, you’ll feel more confident tackling your next knitting project!
