In this workshop, you will learn the art of knitting and will make a beautiful knitted lavender bag or glasses case.

During the workshop, our knitting legend, Judy, will teach you:

  • the types of yarn available and how to match to your needles
  • how to master and recognise basic stitches and techniques
  • how to read a basic pattern and the standard abbreviations used
  • essential stitches including casting on and off
  • how to knit and purl to create garter, stocking and rib stitches
  • how to knit an eyelet
  • how to sew up your finished seam
  • the differences between English and Continental knitting.

We’ll arm you with all you need, and need to know, to be able to make and finish your project beautifully. Then take your new skill home to keep making. Practice really does make perfect!
