The technical term for getting yarn on the needles and ready to knit is called a CAST ON. When just starting out, you need to know at least one way of casting on before learning how to do any other techniques. Learn how to 'Get Your Yarn On' with this mini-course.

"How can I recommend your class to the world?! I love it! I'm crafty, but was not a knitter – but you changed that! You showed me the basics with such patience and clarity. I had trouble at first getting the yarn onto the needles, but casting on is now the easy part! You took knitting from a beautiful craft that felt frustrating, to my new hobby! I can't wait to try my next project with you – I found the most beautiful yarn! Thank you, Marissa!!"

I was in elementary school when my art teacher Mom first taught me how to knit (and sew and a whole bunch of other things). I always assumed that other kids had the same resources that I did, a lot of art and craft supplies and someone to show me.
When I found out that very few friends had someone to teach them how to do fun things like art and crafting, I was surprised and a little sad. I learned how to be creative and do so many things with my hands without having to look outside my home.
In college I picked up knitting in earnest and taught myself how to do more complicated techniques. A friend asked me to teach her and from there my love of teaching has only grown. I teach in a very practical way, teaching on the yarn level, making it easier to fix issues and prevent mistakes. When I teach someone how to knit (or sew), they have learned a skill that they in turn can teach their loved ones.

"I am so glad that I tried something out of my comfort zone and signed up for that first beginners knitting class. You made it enjoyable by being so patient and helpful while always teaching with a smile. I never felt frustrated or lost like I thought I would. Your handouts and personal videos were a lifesaver for me so I could continue working during the week on items that challenged me. I also knew that if I ever got stuck on a project you would eagerly help via texts or video. You have added something relaxing and enriching to my life. Thank you so much. I am really looking forward to doing some more projects with you. Please keep up your wonderful teaching style."

"I’m so glad I found Marissa’s course! I’ve always wanted to learn to knit but didn’t know where to start. Marissa’s course was exactly what I needed. She showed me exactly what supplies to get (no guessing), and her high-quality close-up videos made getting started a snap! It’s like she knew what questions I had and answered them all. Her course also includes professionally done PDF instructions with amazing graphics! I printed these out and put them in my bag just in case I need a quick refresher the next time I pick up my needles. I now feel confident “getting my yarn on” and I think my stitches look pretty great!"

Have you tried to learn how to get yarn onto knitting needles and have been frustrated with the sources available? Everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. This course can be taken at your pace and with super detailed videos that you can pause, you'll have complete control of the material so you can learn however is best for you. This course does NOT go into more depth onto the knit and purl stitches, it is just to get your yarn onto the needles.
Knitting is awkward in the beginning for anyone who tries it. It takes some time and dedication to get your hands to move in the right way at the right time. You will make mistakes. I still make mistakes, it just comes with being human and easily distractable! If at any time you feel like it is not working for you, please contact me and I can help you.
The course is presented in an online platform called Teachable. Teachable guides you through the classes and videos in order. You can pause and rewatch the videos as many times as you need. The techniques are repeated several times in each video to reduce the number of times you need to rewatch (No judgment there!) The techniques are also done very slowly with commentary the whole time to help you understand what is going on at the yarn level.
You can let Teachable know you are complete with a section and it will mark your spot for you, that way when you come back at a later time, you can start where you left off. In each lecture of the course, the appropriate printable resources are available and close by. I recommend watching the videos and doing the sections/lectures in order.
This course is a detailed look at what a beginner should expect and needs to know to get yarn onto their knitting needles. It is very basic but thorough, beginners should learn one step at a time so that they understand why they are doing what they are doing. The regular course price is $38 but for this limited time is being offered at 50% off - just $19! It gives you the confidence and know how to get started with knitting.
If you find that you are still not learning the techniques, you can contact me for some support via email or video chat. If after a consultation it is just not clicking for you, I offer a 100% refund within 30 days after purchase.
