Knitting Boot Camp

KBC LogoOver five years in development, this curriculum has scores of graduates. The instructor workbook, coupled with the two required student texts (Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book and Knitter’s Book of Finishing Techniques, by Nancy Wiseman) make it easy for an experienced knitting instructor to present KBC. The instructor’s manual includes tips for presenting, diagrams to support instruction, and common sense knitting tips and tricks gained from years of experience helping customers solve their problems. The KBC curriculum is presented in eight two-hour lessons that create enthusiastic, confident knitters.
