I am currently leading a Knit and Crochet Bible Study. We recently had our first session.
If you are about to lead a study, here is an idea that may help.
In my group everyone already knows how to knit and/or crochet. They are at varying levels, but each is working on a project.
Lesson 1 focuses on Jesus as the Foundation of our spiritual life. We are called to ‘cast our burdens on him”. Along this line we must make our foundation strong when we ‘cast on’ or our projects will fall apart.
So we practiced different ways to cast on in knitting. Did you know there are multiple cast one methods?
The “long tail cast on” is the most popular. We reviewed that. Then we discussed “knit on” and “cable cast on”. You can find a description of each of these on the knitty web site.
If you want to add the beginning of a crochet project, some techniques to practice could include the foundation single crochet.
In preparation for this I took some extra sets of hooks and needles and well as some scrap yarn from my stash to allow everyone to practice. I made sure all hooks and needles returned to me before everyone left.
I would love to hear what practical lessons you have used in these sessions. Tell me about them. Share your suggestions to help others planning their first sessions.
