About the Class:
This series of four, two-hour classes is designed for those who are completely new to knitting as well as those returning to the craft and who want to re-familiarise themselves with the basics.
During our time together, we’ll cover the techniques needed to complete your own beautiful scarf – the perfect garment to take us through our autumn to winter transition and an ideal first project. We’ll learn how to cast on and off, knit and purl and change stitch pattern. We’ll discuss the importance of tension and explain some of the commonly used knitting terms. An example of the scarf is shown to the right.
The cost includes all materials (yarn, needles and project bag), your pattern, notes and tuition – so you just need to bring yourself!
