We all make mistakes. It’s ok, we’re only human. But rather than crying over spilled yarn and starting over on your project, we can help you fix your mistakes. It’s kind of like in Back to the Future when Marty goes back in time and screws up his parents meeting and has to set them up again so he doesn’t fade into oblivion. Only your hands won’t start disappearing if you don’t fix your project in time . . . we think.

A lot of the mistakes you’ll encounter in knitting are pretty easy to fix once you learn how.

We at the Yarn Craft Academy are gonna help you get back to the future! er, knitting! instead of wallowing in despair at another frogged project.

In this online video class, knitting instructor Johnny Vasquez will take you through some of the most common knitting mistakes, how to identify the problem, how to fix it, and even how to prevent some of them. By the end of this class you’l have the confidence to laugh in the face of error and keep on knittin’ on!
