whom is this course:
The course is catered for both beginners, who want to learn to
knit, and for people who already know how to knit with the ”Italian"
technique. These could in fact experience some difficulty, because it
is not always easy to accept to become a “beginner" again.
However, according to us, it is worth to overcome this small
inconvenience and handle the frustration for a short while; soon you
will become a true expert.
Why is it worth it? You will see in lessons 2 and 3.
But this course is also suitable for the more experienced knitters
who are longtime users of the Continental technique, as it contains the
methods, techniques, tips and tricks that you might not yet not know
or, even if known to you, might be applied to achieve better results
and broader challenges, easing things out for you.
By following the video course you will learn the basics of the
continental technique that you can subsequently develop and improve.
The learning process is neither long nor particularly demanding. Simply
exercise well, without hurry, and make sure not to miss a single lesson.
If you switch to the next lesson only after having well mastered
the material presented in the previous one, success is guaranteed!
