Now that the holiday season is coming to a close, you may be thinking of ways to improve your knitting skills in the new year.  If you’re wondering where to start we have the perfect opportunity for you.

Whether you’re a beginner just learning to knit or you’re a stitch afficionado looking take your afghan knitting to the next level, you’ll want to try “My First Slip-Stitch Afghan,” one of four classes that Lion Brand offers on Craftsy.

Slip stitch knitting is such a beautiful method that creates a woven colorwork effect. It’s an easy but complex looking stitch, but even a novice knitter can handle it. One of the best qualities of this stitch is that you work with just one color per row, no changing colors or stranding. With “My First Slip-Stitch Afghan,” knitwear designer Rhonda Fargnoli, will teach you how to create our Slip Stitch Sampler Throw, which is composed of six different slip stitch patterns.

The great thing about buying a Craftsy class, it’s yours to own; you can watch it as often as you want until you’ll have a newly completed slip stitch afghan.
