An Introduction to Knitting
An inspirational course for beginners, improvers, or anyone who is a bit rusty and needs a reminder of all the wonderful things that can be easily achieved with simple knitting techniques.
Each week there will be inspiring patterns for original projects to work on.
You will learn the basic principles of hand knitting: knit and purl stitches, simple shaping, textural stitches, lace, cables, knitting in the round, colour work, decorative cast on techniques and simple construction methods for folk mittens and socks. You will also learn how to work from charts, understand patterns and
choose the right yarn for your projects. By the end of
the course you will be able to build on your knowledge
and progress to more complex work.
