You might have seen our 'All About' crochet classes taught by our lovely crochet teacher Gaelle but you would prefer to knit. Here is the answer -- our 'All About' knitting edition. We will be offering three Beginner and three Improver classes which can be taken individually or as a course.
The beginner classes are:
Class One: All About: the Knit Stitch
This class assumes no knowledge of knitting and takes you through the foundation block for all knitting -- the Knit (or plain) stitch. We don't teach casting on in this session as it is easier to learn how to knit and then how to cast on. We supply 4mm needles and DK yarn so all you have to do is book and arrive!
Class Two: All About: the Purl Stitch
Having mastered the knit stitch, the next step is purl. Variations of knit and purl can now be made to make all kinds of textured knits. This class concentrates on mastering the purl.
Class Three: All About: Starting and Finishing
You can't make anything unless you can cast on, cast off and sew up so this is the class to learn how.
The Improver classes will start in the New Year and cover shaping , reading a pattern and knitting in the round.
The All About Classes start in November and places are limited to just five per class so book now to make sure you can join us
