In this video you will learn, as sitting in a virtual classroom, how to read a needle knit pattern. The first part of the class takes you through reading and understanding how the pattern is laid out. The pattern is broken down in in bite size chunks. The second part of class is a "Knit Along" working through the pattern knitting step by step to completion of the whole hat pattern courtesy of Leisure Arts. More books to come and a separate review and GIVEAWAY will follow each in our series! Are you excited yet?!
Thank you Leisure Arts!
