In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

Course Description

Learn to knit with Sheep & Stitch founder Davina Choy's fun 45-minute class for total beginners. With friendly and clear instruction, she breaks down the four fundamental techniques at the heart of knitting: the cast on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and the cast off. She shows how to put them in action in a simple, Skillshare-exclusive scarf pattern specifically designed with the novice in mind. Plus, the zoomed-in video lessons make it especially easy to see each step-by-step move. By the end of the class, you'll have a cushy, comfortable, and swingy scarf perfect for cool days or sharing with a close friend.

Thank you so much Davina for a wonderful introduction to knitting. This is the first time that I'm "finally getting it'. I have tried books, other videos and even classes but yours has been by far the best instruction yet. Your video technique is the best. It's a great angle and you show what your doing many times which makes all the difference. Also, you are walking through the steps in such a manner that it is easily understood. Thanks so much! I know longer feel like I'll never figure out how to knit and I'm half way through my first scarf and I'm looking forward to many more projects in the future. Keep of the great work!!!
