What will you learn?
This 3-part Knitting Diploma Course takes students from novice, to designer, to business-owner, through 17 fully-illustrated, hands-on modules.
The course starts out by establishing the fundamentals, giving you practical advice, to get you practising straight away. This includes topics such as: how to knit, how to read patterns, and how to care for hand knits.
With the basics down, the 2nd part of the course advances students into designing hand knits, along with explanations of how to design some of the most popular knitted items of today, and providing sample patterns to practice with.
The 3rd part of the course takes you step-by-step through starting your own knitting business, whether you wish to sell your work, publish patterns you’ve designed or teach what you know.
To the untrained eye wool is wool, but if you’ve ever stepped into a wool shop you may well have been overwhelmed by choice. It can be hard to differentiate between the vast array of needles, yarns, and notions (accessories), which can be enough to frighten anyone off. The 1st module of the course guides students through some popular types of needles, yarns, and notions, so that they can begin practising, without worrying about their choice of materials and equipment.
The 2nd module of the Knitting Diploma Course dives straight into the basics of knitting, explaining the differences between knit and purl stitches and how to cast on and cast off. Practice is encouraged throughout the course and to make things even easier, you are told which needles and yarn type to use for this particular practice exercise.
The 3rd module expands on the 4 basic processes explained in the previous module, showing how combing knits and purls in different ways make different fabrics, with how to create the 3 basic/foundation fabrics explained here, these being: garter, stocking, and rib, along with additional techniques.

Lo mejor: As a novice inexperienced knitter, I found the course full of information. I've learned new techniques which will enhance my knitting and help me with my projects. As this is a theory based course, there are several videos which do help understand some aspects of the teaching.
