Master your knitting machine FAST!
Learn and practice the basics that every machine knitter should know.

You have to walk before you can run. Yes, you want to make that gorgeous sweater on the cover of Vogue Knitting magazine ... but without a firm foundation, you will not be happy with the results.

Be patient, start at square one and take it one step at a time. Each section builds on the previous skills learned. You will knit 3 caps, each using techniques you've learned.

No matter what machine you have ... LK_150 or a fancy electronic machine, this course is written to apply to any machine.

When you complete this course, we guarantee that you will be ready to knit garments.

"...It really helps me to have all the relevant material in one place in some sort of order. As a beginner at first i was just too overwhelmed to figure out exactly what I needed to know and now you and Matt have made it so easy and fun to learn and to want to learn more. " ~Karen
