About the Course
Do you want to learn to knit, or did you learn when you were little and want to get back into it?
Then this class is for you!
An introduction to the relaxing world of knitting which is suitable for complete beginners or those who have dabbled in the past but need refreshing in the basic skills.
During this three hour workshop Nicky will teach you how to cast on, cast off, knit and purl. You will also be introduced to basic knitting terminology, including yarn types and needle sizes.
You will be given two balls of yarn and a pair of 4mm needles to use and take home with you so you can carry on developing your skills.
