Hand Knitting – The Basics

A taster day covering the basics for beginners

This one day workshop is aimed at complete beginners or those who have not picked up their needles for a while and need a reminder of the basics. You will learn how to cast on and cast off, make knit and purl stitches, increase and decrease stitches and simple finishing, sewing up and embellishing techniques. You will also learn how to follow a simple pattern and chart as you start to make your first knitted project – either a decorative flower, a simple toy or a bag.

Although the day will follow a schedule, the teaching is flexible, allowing you to go at your own pace.
