Whether you’re an absolute beginner or looking to refresh your skills, the Beginner Class will give you a firm grounding in the basics of machine knitting. Beginner Classes require no previous knowledge of knitwear or knitting machinery.

You’ll gain an understanding of how the machine works and what it can do, with plenty of time to practice and experiment.

You will learn the following techniques:

- Increasing & Decreasing (Changing The Width Of The Knitted Fabric)

- Lace Holes

- Ladders

- Casting Off

You’ll create a range of samples to take away and learn from. Also, depending on your progress, you will be given the opportunity to knit yourself a scarf at the end lesson.
