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
