How to Create a Self Education Plan for Knitters

This is a follow up to my post on Formal Educations in Hand Knitting Design. It is possible to create your own study plan. I made a point early on in my learning curve to either choose projects that required a specific skill which I did not currently have or to learn new skills on swatches. I had taken a class in couturier sewing skills that was a focused techniques based class in creating samples rather than a specific project.  It was definitely the fastest route to learning in a compressed time period. The charts below are in no way intended to list every possible skill which master knitters have but they do create a staring point if you want to expand your knowledge.

  1. What about Eastern style knitting?! I assure youi do not knit combination as I both knit & purl through the back loop!

    Though I do love this podt in general.

    1. That's a good one and I bet other knitters could come up with other topics I missed.

  2. This is a wonderful resource!
