What’s it all about?

Warm up this winter and brighten your accessories cupboard with your very own handmade woollies. We will learn to knit and get the basics down so you can be sporting your own scarf, hat or gloves in no time!

What will we cover?

In this hands-on workshop we’ll cover everything needed for beginners’ knitting:

  • casting on (getting started)
  • knitting
  • purling
  • casting off (finishing your knitting).

We’ll work together and focus on casting on and the ‘knit’ stitch. There will also be take home resources to practice with and solidify anything that you didn’t quite pick up during the class. We’ll also have a quick look at how to choose needles and wool that work together, when you might choose to use your different stitches and how to read knitting patterns so you won’t be stuck knitting scarves for the rest of time!

Please bring your own needles and yarn (fatter needles and chunky yarn are easier to learn with) or if you would like us to provide materials then please choose the ‘with materials’ option when paying.
