This is a pattern for a 14" baby hat that comes with a 3-page teaching module detailing how to prepare for and teach a knitting class on the magic loop technique. Teaching a knitting class requires serious work. My teaching modules remove a lot of the stress and preparation and allow you to enjoy your class more. The PDF includes: * three pages of detailed and innovative instructions on how to prepare for and teach a magic loop knitting class, including what materials and facilities you will need, how to prepare for the class, step-by-step schedule of what to do in class, what students will need to know before taking the class, and how long the class should be * a one-page handout to give your students that includes important tips and resources that they can take home with them * a pattern for a simple, adorable baby hat that they can use to practice the magic loop technique * full pattern and teaching support from the designer I bring a wealth of experience to these modules: a knitter for the past 25 years, I have taught dozens of knitting classes, from beginning to advanced, in a variety of venues. I have also been a college professor for 12 years, and have thought a great deal about what works in the classroom. TESTIMONIALS (for my How to Teach Stranded Knitting module): I proposed your class to my LYS and they've said sure and we're setting a date in January. Got my money's worth alreadywhen I can I buy more? - Joeli on Ravelry Wonderful idea, the layout and content are great! And a beautiful pattern. Thank you for taking the time to do this. tory86 on Ravelry You have created a high-quality teaching aid. I don't think I have ever received such a good-looking, detailed and useful handout at a class. - Nancy N.

My mom taught me to knit when I was 12, but I really went gaga for crafting in grad school -- so much so that I've changed careers from history professor to full-time knitting designer, teacher, and writer!
