Are you in LOVE with knitting, but frustrated by the types of projects you're limited to right now?
You deserve to become a fearless knitter who can knit ANYTHING your heart desires. Unfortunately, the resources available out there can make reaching this goal difficult. I've made it my mission to create clear, easy-to-follow videos and knitting instruction that help you make breakthroughs in your knitting.
In this comprehensive video guide, I created nine video-based modules, each one building on the skills you learned in the previous section, so you're learning in an easy, step-by-step way without getting overwhelmed or frustrated.
- how to knit in the round so you can easily make hats, mittens, gloves, socks, and sweaters without learning with double pointed needles.
- a variety of choices you have for the perfect cast-on and bind-off for your project- it is those finishing notes which can make or break a project.
- my tips on exactly which projects you should choose (and when you should start them) so you become an empowered and confident knitter, amazed by what you can knit (instead of frustrated by what you can't!)
- the keys to transforming your knitting mistakes into victories with me by your side giving you friendly expert advice and tips.
- how to choose the perfect yarn for your project, including the best color for your skin tone, most flattering for your body shape, and the highest quality for your budget
- the simple way to measure your knitting and count rows and stitches
Knitting Superstar Includes
Nine video based modules in a 157-page, easy-to-follow PDF document that will walk you through all the knitting techniques a superstar (someone who can knit anything confidently and easily) needs to know.
Plus, you will receive pictures, step-by-step instructions, patterns, diagrams, handouts, and access to the enthusiastic, supportive community of knitters dedicated to helping each other achieve Knitting Superstardom.
Module 1: Magic Loop
After this module, you'll agree with my students and me: Magic Loop is genius!
We will explore exactly how to knit tubes of any diameter without stretched stitches or laddering. No more double pointed needles or buying way too many needles for your projects.
You'll also learn how to adapt any pattern written in the round to Magic Loop.
Module 2: Toe-Up Two-at-a-Time Socks
Toe-up socks are not only a fast and fun project, but also a place to learn so many invaluable techniques that you can then use on other, more advanced projects.
Techniques like short rows, invisible bind-offs, and even going back and adding increases to previous rows when you forget them - these may seem like mysteries now but they won't be for long.
Included: How to knit anything two-at-a-time, the best toe-up cast-on, the no-holes Fleegle heel, and how to create your own (perfect-fitting) sock patterns (yep, even for your husband with size 13 feet).
Module 3: Top-Down Two-at-a-Time Socks
Top-down socks teach you even more challenging techniques like Liat's Limitless Cast-On for Two-at-a-Time Anything, Kitchener stitch, the "pick up and knit," and more - all skills you will use on future projects.
Bonus Tips Included: How to knit backwards, the foolproof way to measure your feet perfectly every time, and a fun + easy lace pattern to keep your socks interesting.
Module 4: Continental Knitting
In this intensive module, you'll learn how to make the switch from American Style to speedy and ergonomic Continental Knitting.
We'll cover different ways to tension the yarn in your left hand, exercises to help your fingers learn their new movements, and tips for how to make the switch without frustration.
Plus you'll learn ergonomic hand and body posture, as well as how to knit without looking (can you say "movie theater"?).
Module 5: How to Knit Faster
89% of knitters knit slower than they should.
In this module, I will show you proven ways students like you have used to knit faster, avoid hand fatigue and pain, and most importantly, enjoy knitting more projects!
Tips range from fixing your tension so that your stitches flow smoothly to avoiding and/or fixing common mistakes that happen when you try to go faster.
Module 6: Top 10 Knitting Mistakes
Knitting mistakes like dropped knit and purl stitches, twisted stitches, too-tight cast-ons and bind-offs... they're all fixable.
Being able to recognize and calmly fix mistakes will enable you to try more challenging projects because when you can fix your mistakes... you can tackle ANYTHING!
Included: 10 videos showing the most common mistakes all knitters make -- how to avoid them, how to recognize them, and how to fix them.
You'll Also Receive Tons of Bonus Materials
Video Knitting Dictionary
The key to learning to knit more challenging projects on your own is to learn to read the patterns that go with them.
I created this dictionary with over 30 videos so that any time you run into an unknown abbreviation or technique you'll have me there to teach you how to do it.
Just like when you learn a new language, when you learn to read more difficult patterns you need to have a dependable dictionary. The worst time to go looking on YouTube is when you're stuck in the middle of a project and just NEED to have someone show you the technique without any fuss.
Included: More than 100 common abbreviations defined, plus videos for the 30 most common techniques you'll encounter when knitting on your own.
How to Read Patterns
Never get confused by a pattern again! Once you learn the language of knitting, every pattern becomes a roadmap to a beautiful, fun project.
You'll learn: How to check your gauge easily, how to calculate ease for a perfect fit for you, how to understand the different sections of a knitting pattern.
You'll also learn how to read repeats and options, even when the pattern doesn't follow the established conventions.
How to Choose and Buy Yarn
Chefs know their ingredients and knitters must know theirs too.
When you know the right yarn to pick for each project, you'll avoid limp, saggy clothes, stiff, itchy scarves, and patterns obscured by color variations.
This is so important for having your projects come out the way they should that I've devoted a whole bonus section to it.
Includes: Choosing fibers, weights, and colors of yarn, plus when to save money and when to splurge.
Top 10 Knitting Books
A certified book lover, after knitting for 15 years I've amassed a wonderful collection of knitting books that have helped me improve.
I give you the list of my top 10.
Includes: Everything from pattern books to stitch dictionaries to my #1 guide to learning about yarn.
Tons of Amazing Patterns!
To learn the hundreds of techniques I teach you in this course, you'll need fun, fast, fashionable patterns to practice with. In this course I include more than 20 patterns that are specifically designed to 1) teach you the techniques easily and 2) look awesome. Plus I show you how to customize patterns to fit you just the way you like.
...plus more surprises that you'll have to buy the course to see!

What KnitFreedom Students Have to Say About This Knitting Superstar Knitting Class:
Liat is the best teacher/instructor for all things knitted. Her Knitting Superstar Course definitely made me a knitting superstar. I feel fearless when I approach a project now. There were a lot of things I wouldn't even try before taking her course, now I will try anything. Love the way she teaches.
i love your website..... for years i only knitted washcloths. i am into socks now. and very addicted. i don't think i could have done them with out your website. great job!!!!!
I went from knowing nothing at all about knitting to making awesome garments (continental style!) just from your ebooks so thanks!! :) You seriously rock!
I’ve been FROGGING for years. After hundreds of books, many disappointed people whom I can never deliver the knitting projects I promise, I FINALLY discovered all the things I do wrong with my tensioning. Bless you dear!
Wow! You are one terrific knitting teacher.
Your videos are so easy to understand and presented so well. I really appreciate the camera angle, colors and light you use, I feel as though I’m looking at the real thing right before my eyes!
Your toe-up socks on the Magic Loop were so easy and turned out beautifully. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for this video. I have been trying to figure out from books and other videos (where folks are knitting waaaay too fast and the camera is far too far away) how to pick up and knit something ‘using the same dpn”or the”same needle”- just could not figure it out – until this video.
My first Magic Loop socks were from your Magic Loop Socks one-at-a-time pattern I found on Ravelry.
Excellent. Very clear demonstration. I got it right away. Thanks a million.
You have taught me all the fine tuning I needed to know to become a very proficient knitter.
I've made an amazing baby blanket that I did not have to tear out all the way even once b/c you taught me how to keep going then fix my mistake as I came to that spot...even many rows down.
You taught me how to fix half-done stitches and recognize mistakes in intricate patterns. So I just can't thank you enough! You've taken my anxiety over "frogging" and turned it into calm confidence!
I LOVE your ebook. I got the toe up sock and your videos make everything so clear, it's easy to scroll to the place I want and I can work at my computer without having to make the rest of the household watch my DVDs.
Liat!!! Oh my Oh my” ..I love your e-book” can you tell~I am so excited!!!! I have made two pair of socks in my ten years of knitting on magic loops, one at a time mind you, and wanted to learn to do two at a time. Your instructions are amazing.
I just finished my first pair of 2 @ a time, toe up socks last night! Thanks to your terrific video e-book and email advice; couldn’t have done it without you.
I learned to knit socks with your tutorial. I’ve only knit a few pairs so far but your patterns are my base for all socks and now I knit them toe-up using your tutorial on that as well. All Magic Loop. Thanks!
I just want to tell you guys how great I think you are!
I had looked at many toe-up sock videos, but yours is the one that made the most sense... and made me feel like I could actually do socks.
Whenever anyone at KnittingParadise asks for help with socks, I always refer them to you. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for these awesome videos. You have helped me so much. Thank you! Now I know I can do a complete pair of socks. I always get stuck on the heel. Thanks to you I know I can do it!
I am a huge fan of Liat and her online knitting courses and videos.
I am truly an online learner and now knitter thanks to her. Up until one month ago I knew nothing about knitting, but I had an overwhelming desire to learn how to knit socks. I bought books, I went to a local knitting store in a city I had visited (I do not have one in my town), I looked at tons of You Tube videos and I immediately feel at ease with Liat.
Mind you my books purchases and other attempts to learn I feel were a waste of money and a waste of my time. Liat is an amazing teacher and I have so far made several socks which I am very proud of.
I owe that to her Knitting Superstar course and extra courses I purchased. They are filled with a wealth of knowledge and tips and tricks. I used to be intimidated about knitting as I was so afraid of making a mistake, not anymore as I know how to fix them!
I have progressed so fast in my skills that I decided to buy her Knitting Mosaics Course. After watching it I can truly say I feel absolutely comfortable trying out this new skill. She breaks everything down and demonstrates everything so clearly, you never have a question. I can't say that about anything else I have tried. I am hoping to apply these techniques to my sock knitting, which I am obsessed with.
Speaking as a newbie, I feel I have gained so much through watching her videos and reading her materials. Every course I have viewed is explained so clearly and easily.
If you too are looking to build on your skills or wish to gain a better understanding of anything about knitting, I highly recommend her courses. I hope my comments give you comfort in making your decision. I am not connected with her or her company, just a truly pleased customer.
Thank you Liat for making learning how to knit so easy and so enjoyable!
Just so you know I got my first pair of socks done today. I owe my first pair of sock success to you and your awesome videos. Now I have completed a toe up sock pair I am casting on for a top down two at a time I know I can do those thanks to your step by step video.
I have seen tons of videos on you tube demonstrating how to turn the heel but you are the only one who showed what the last row looks like and that gave me confidence thank you for being so detailed with your videos!
I’m halfway through my first pair of socks using the Magic Loop. You videos were a fantastic help. It’s so much fun.
I just purchased your magic loop ebook…sooo helpful! you are a hoot! I am awaiting my online order of suggested needles and am looking forward to knitting all the patterns I’ve been saving up (and avoiding due to instructions using dpn’s!) Many thanks for your enthusiasm (and being a great teacher)!
I wanted to take this little moment to thank you for your tutorials on YouTube. I have just discovered your videos and subsequently just signed up to learn more about knitting the Liat Way.
I'm a very novice knitter, even though I have been poking away at knitting for a long time. I recently "got a bee in my bonnet" about wanting to knit in the round... why not?... and in the process of learning about the different ways you can do that I discovered the Magic Loop trick. After about six or more tries with different YouTube teachers, and still not getting it at all, I happened to watch your video. And it was so easy! listening to you and watching your hands! I was able to figure it out and actually do it!
I am really excited to think that now I might be able to add to my ever growing pile of (fabulous) long knitted rectangles with some circular things for a change. (Ahem...) Cables and color work... who knows... the list goes on... It's great.
Thank you so much for your teacher's heart and your wonderful website and tutorials. I am hooked. Or maybe, I should say, "I'm knit!"
I just wanted to put my two cents in about Liat's Superstar Knitting course.
I LOVE this course. Liat shows everything in such detail and step by step. She does it slowly so you can see what she is doing and she shows the stitch and instructions in both continental and english style knitting.
I so want to be a knitting superstar and I wish I had nothing else I had to do but go thru the course faster and knit my days away. Knitting is more then a hobby - it has a calming effect. I would say it's a "zen" thing but I'm not sure I even know what that means - LOL I did finally just get to learn how to do two at a time knitting. I made some boot cuffs for my first choice on that because I figured it would be an easy pattern to work with. Oh my gosh - what a huge difference it makes to get done and realize your are really DONE. I was knitting one at a time for a long time because I was a little afraid to tackle the two at a time thing but here again - Liat made it easy - I was making it hard when it wasn't.
It's so thrilling to realize you don't have to start over doing the same thing again. I have not tackled the socks yet. That's next on my list. My friends and family have kept me busy knitting fingerless gloves and boot cuffs so haven't gotten to the socks yet but I'm determined! I would love to be able to make a sweater someday and some pretty lace shawls. I know I will get there if I just keep learning with this course as I have time.
This course would be worth any amount of money so even Liat's normal price is so very inexpensive. She has a really nice voice too - pleasant to listen to and one of those voices that is distinct.
I can't say enough about how wonderful Liat is as a teacher. You will not be disappointed and you will learn how to knit like a superstar. You can go at your own pace - fast or slow pokey like me but you will amaze yourself. BUY IT - BUY IT - BUY IT - you will not be sorry.
I want to thank you for your "Becoming a Knitting Superstar". Last winter I decided to take my knitting to another level. I had knitted on and off for years (since I was a teenager..I'm now 60 :))but was never quite pleased with my finished products. They were "okay" but nothing special and I had never attempted a sweater. I knew that would mean disaster.
First, I took a sock class at my LYS where I learned Magic Loop. That ignited something in me to forge ahead. I found your videos online (probably while googling something I needed for the sock class). The way you communicate really connected with me. You instructions and videos are clear and fun!
So, I bought "Becoming a Knitting Superstar". I went through the course step by step, mostly watching the videos over and over. I would watch them while working on the projects but I would also watch them while I was on my treadmill, waiting in an airport, etc. As I worked through the ebook, something began to click. Here are some of the things I learned that I found most helpful.
1. I learned to "read my work". This has helped tremendously. I don't make nearly the mistakes I used to, because I "catch" them before they are a real problem.
2. Learning how to fix my mistakes was the most freeing thing. I loved all you said about making mistakes. I even shared this with some of the gals at my church. I believe it is a great way to view life! The words goes beyond knitting.
3. I learned to relax. I used to hold my knitting with a death grip. My poor hands cramped up and knitting was not as relaxing as I thought it should be. This also increased my speed...which means I'm less distraught if I have to take something out or start over.
4. I gained confidence. My projects began to "turn out" just as I had hoped. I felt more confident when I went into my LYS. I knew the language. I even knew what questions to ask.
As my projects began "turning out", in my head, I could hear you say "that's okay, because you will be making many beautiful things". (You say that somewhere in the Becoming s Superstar ebook...I'm just not sure exactly where.).
Finally, I am making beautiful things. I finished my first sweater in August and I can actually wear it! I'm working on my second sweater and am super pleased. It's almost finished--all that's left is finishing up the sleeves. I made a really pretty shawl/scarf that had a lace edge with beading. And of course there are others. I haven't made one single thing since I took the course that I have not been happy about.
I want to say thank you to you Liat for your superstar knitting program it was the best $77 I ever spent in my life it has changed my life completely I'm really top.
I belong to a knitting group now and I have friends I'm retired and learning how to knit socks it has has changed my life thank you so much I hope you and your family have the greatest Christmas ever because I know I will.
