Knitting with Nancy Wynn

Come and visit me in my NEW Home Knitting Studio for knitting classes and workshops.

YouTubeCheck out my YouTube Channel for instructional videos about knitting.


Now that fall has arrived (well kind of), I feel it's time to add some crisp, fall colors to our lives and what better way then to do some colorwork mittens and/or hats.I created these mittens using nothing more then my gauge, The Mitten Handbook and Alterknits. 

On May 6th 2017, I began teaching students how to reproduce the sweater  pictured on the right. It is affectionally named the "Heidigan." During the Knitting Workshops we will explore all aspects of sweater construction. Because the sweater is commercially made students will learn how to recreate it using their measurements, gauge and basic math. Students will learn how to "read" the commercial sweater and then write a pattern, draw schematics, customize the size and even learn how calculate yarn requirements! For obvious reasons, knitters will need to possess certain skills to participate in this class.

Stay tuned to see what's planned for our fall and winter knitting projects!!!

  • I am a Minnesota knitting teacher who thinks knitting should be both fun and relaxing.
  • I offer many different knitting classes and workshops, all located in my home studio.
  • I teach all aspects of knitting to all ages, from learning the basics to complex patterns and techniques for the more experienced knitter. I’m especially skilled at finishing and incorporating full fashion increases/decreases to give your garment a professional look.
  • I’m a perfect alternative for anyone that wants to learn how to knit or further improve the skills they have, but doesn’t want to make what’s offered in yarn shops. With me, you can learn what you want whenever and wherever you want!
  • I provide many free knitting videos, making this a “one-stop” site for knitters who are searching for online technical help without the hassle of navigating through endless sites. You can also find these videos on my YouTube channel:
  • I will recommend appropriate patterns, yarns, needles, and notions. More importantly, I will be able to point you in the right direction to make all of your purchases.
  • I offer free knitting patterns, all available for download.
  • My web site will be especially helpful to the new knitter because they will learn through my videos that their problems are not unique but rather common mistakes that can be easily remedied.
