With our Free Beginner Tutorial Design, you'll learn how to knit and make coasters. They're a small project, so easy to finish, and a great home project for yourself or to give as gifts. Each coaster will be either a garter stitch square, the easiest of stitch patterns, or a stockinette stitch square with a garter stitch border - your choice.
It's designed for absolute beginners, and if you look at the PDF online, you'll be able to click the links to get to the KnitSchool video you need.
You'll learn how to: cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
