Learn to Knit Continental

  • Ash Farm Ivy Chimney Lane SA67 8JU Stepaside UK (map)

Whether you are brand-new to hand knitting, a bit rusty, or looking to expand your skills and increase your speed by learning the continental knitting technique, this course is an ideal opportunity to learn the basics of continental knitting in a relaxed and supportive environment. You will learn the two fundamental stitches, knit and purl, and practise these by exploring different stitch patterns and colour changing, to knit a stitch sampler cowl that you will be proud to wear.

You will be provided with 3 mini skeins of John Arbon Knit By Numbers DK yarn, needles and a project bag.

No prior experience is necessary for this workshop.
