How to Knit Workshop 2nd February 2019 | baa ram ewe | Saturday, 02. February 2019

Learn how to knit with our workshop that is perfect for complete beginners! You'll learn all the basics: how to knit, purl, put stitches on your needle (cast on), finish up (cast off), change yarn in the middle of your project, weave in your ends, and how to read the information that comes on a ball of yarn. You will then progress to basic increase and decreases, and learn how to read a basic pattern. By the end of the session you'll be able to knit a scarf and basic hat. Honest! You will!
Quotes from attendees:"Individual guidance was invaluable. The atmosphere was really supportive and confidence building"
