Absolute Beginners' Knitting


Welcome to the wonderfully yarny world of knitting. Today’s workshop is for total, absolute beginners and is led by textiles artist and passionate knitter Katy Bevan. You’ll start with the basics and work at your own speed to learn how to cast-on, knit and purl stitches as well as the basic increases and decreases. By the end of the day you’ll make a garter stitch pot-holder and have a pattern to take home so you can make another! Katy provides all of the materials so all you will need to bring is your good self and a bounty of enthusiasm. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop! Make those chillier wintry nights just that bit toastier with a pair of needles and a ball of sumptuous yarn. You’ll totally love it – go on, book now. Why not book with a buddy to learn together? What a hoot!
