What’s it all about?

Ever tried knitting before and found it hard to get going? Or have never ever come close to a needle but want to start? Enter chunky knitting! The process is the same as regular knitting but the thick needles and yarns make it much easier to visualise and learn the stitches. It’s also very trendy right now, so come to this class and you’ll be making chunky cowls and sweaters in no time.

For this class we will be doing a cozy cowl.

What will we cover?

Using 15mm needles and thick (chunky) wool we’ll learn the basics of knitting:

  • Slip knot
  • Cast on with needles
  • Cast on with hands
  • Knitting
  • Purling
  • Cast off

Who will be teaching?

Maria and Maria (yes we are both named Maria!) run Hook & Hop together, selling tee-yarn from Spain as well as crochet and knitting kits. They both love to crochet and knit and are set to spread the love! You can catch up with them on Facebook or Instagram.
