This relaxed all day class is suitable for complete beginners as well as those who haven’t knitted for some time. We will cover all the skills needed to get you knitting up a storm including:
- types of yarn and needles
- casting on
- the knit stitch
- the purl stitch
- casting off
- an introduction to picking up stitches
The class includes a pattern for a pair of fingerless gloves which will be started during the class and you will then have all the skills to complete them at home.
All materials are supplied for this workshop. This includes a 100g ball of British wool blend yarn in your choice of colour, a pair of 5mm needles and full instructions.
You will also need to bring a packed lunch or there is a cafe in the Garden Centre as well as a large Tesco store on site.
Your tutor for this class will be Carol Ibbetson. Carol works with many of the big publishers as a technical editor and pattern grader for knitting and crochet books. She is also a designer in her own right with a passion for sharing her skills.
