Learn to Knit – 3 Week Course
Dates: Thursday January 10th, 17th and 24th (3 weeks) Time: 7-9pm Venue: Kathy’s Knits Cost : £70 per person for the class
This series of three, 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 including casting-on and off, knitting and purling, and reading basic patterns to change the stitch / texture of your work. By keeping our class size small, we’re able to provide individual support to ensure that new techniques are introduced only as your own experience grows.
The cost of this course includes all materials (yarn, needles, pattern, notes and tuition) – so you just need to bring yourself!
Knitting in the round with cables, colour and lace
Dates: Thursday 21st & 28th February, 7th March (3 weeks) Time: 7-9pm Venue: Kathy’s Knits Cost : £70 per person for the class
Knitting in the round is an extremely useful technique allowing us to seamlessly creating tubes of knitting that can be transformed into hats, socks, cuffs, sleeves and garments.
During these classes, we learn how to cast on to join our stitches in the round and how to work a variety of techniques, including stranded cables, colour work, and lace while creating a beautiful cowl – perfect for the Scottish winter or an ideal Christmas present. We will also discuss the different tools that we can use to work in the round (circular needle and double pointed needles) and introduce some of the more advanced techniques for working smaller projects.
These classes are suitable for those who can already knit and purl and who wish to discover the delights of circular knitting.
