About the Course

Learn to machine knit and make your own scarf! This one day workshop will introduce you to the basics of machine knitting, perfect for the absolute beginner.

We will go through how the machine works, casting on and off as well as some simple but effective decorative techniques such as stripes, lace holes and ladders.

In the afternoon we will move on to using the punch-card to make 2 colour patterned knits, and you will have the opportunity to knit a scarf using any yarns you like from the wide range available at my studio.

At the end of the day you will have a range of machine knitted samples and a scarf to take away with you

I thought this machine knitting workshop by Kandy was fantastic! Kandy really takes the time to help you get to know the machine and gives you some amazing opportunities to practice different styles. The course length is perfectly timed and really inspired me to work on other arts and crafts I do.

I had an ace time learning to knit on a machine with Kandy! My experience/ability level was sub-beginner, if that's possible, but by the end of the workshop I'd made myself a lovely scarf to take home with me. A lovely way to spend a day. Looking forward to going along to another of Kandy's workshops when I get the chance. Would definitely recommend.

I took this course and was so inspired I went and got myself a knitting machine! Kandy is really knowledgeable and experienced so can answer any question, it's really good using a machine knowing that she can fix any problem! Her studio is amazing as well, it's got so much character and it's inspiring seeing all of her work. Would definitely recommend - I came for the day from Leeds and the studio was a minute's walk from Sheffield train station.

I’d always wanted to try machine knitting and Kandy’s workshop was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. All the basic techniques are explained and demonstrated clearly, step by step. It was great fun being able to knit a scarf to take home. Kandy is a brilliant teacher, designer and artist. Highly recommended!

I absolutely loved this workshop!
Kandy Diamond is such a good teacher and she adapts the workshop depending on who is there, what their learning types are.
My scarf I made is one of my favourite things I own! Thank you Kandy 💕
