Beginner's Machine Knitting

Beginner's Machine Knitting


Our Beginner’s Machine Knitting Class will teach you how to knit using a domestic knitting machine. Learn the basics of how your knitting machine works, how to set it up and how to knit on your own.

You will learn how to:

- Set up a knitting machine
- Cast your machine on and off, knit lace holes stripes and ladders
- Experiment with tensions

I bought my preowned knitting Machine a couple of years ago and after many failed attempts to get going, it’s been sat in a cupboard gathering dust. I came across this course quite by accident, and I’m so happy that I did. In 150 minutes of excellent tuition, Farah has got me up and running and really excited about the potential of developing my expertise. Everything was very clearly explained and demonstrated, Farah talked me through a few hiccups and was very patient as I worked through each process. The course notes were excellent, very clear and well explained and will be an excellent aide memoir for the future. This has given me so much confidence to continue exploring and experimenting with the machine and one I’ve had time to consolidate what I have learned, I’ll be back for more!
