An introduction to getting started on freeform knitting, showing how easy it is to produce fun, colourful hats, bags, scarves or even complete garments. Give a tired old hat or bag a bright, exciting new life.
Basic knowledge of knitting and / or crochet essential.
Lisette Webley is a freelance knitwear designer and maker, having been knitting since she was about four. She designs garments on her knitting machine, though knitting and crocheting by hand are still her favourites. She took a course on freeform knitting (then called scrumbling) with the wonderful Prudence Mapstone right back at the start of Wonderwool and has been hooked ever since. When she ran out of friends to convert she turned to giving workshops in the Bristol area to spread the love of this simple and satisfying craft.

The tutor will bring basic knitting needles and crochet hooks to use, some yarn and some examples and will provide a worksheet to take away as a resource. There will also be packets of assorted yarn for purchase on the day at an additional cost per student.
Students should please feel free to bring any yarn leftovers of various thicknesses, especially bright colours and sparkly yarn. They are welcome to use their own knitting needles and crochet hooks if they have them.
