Meet Hannah Abell: Hannah will be teaching a 4 week children’s knitting class
I have been actively knitting for 11 years. My mother taught me the basics, and beyond that I am self-taught. Knitting is something that I love to do - just ask anyone in my family! I come from a large family and enjoy spending time, learning with, and teaching all ages of people.

Yarn needs to be worsted weight. At Michaels and online, these brands are available and of good quality: Red Heart (Super Saver or Soft), Craftsmart value, Caron Simply Soft, Impeccable Impecable, Loops ‘n Threads. They all have different yardage lengths, but for the project I am planning, the ranges they have are acceptable.

Pencil/pen and notebook/paper to take notes, if the student feels that it will help them remember what is taught
Crochet hook (this is really only needed for the last class- weaving in loose ends, and I will have some of my own, which is why it isn’t required).
