Keen to learn to knit and follow a pattern?  Are you an absolute beginner or one with some skills which are a bit rusty? In this course you can learn new stitches, cabling or aran knitting.


If this sounds like you, this seven week course is just what you are looking for.  And we’d love to have you come along and learn the craft of knitting.

The vibe of this course will be informal.  We’ll adapt the format to fit the interest of those attending. You will learn about the tools of the trade – knitting needles, yarn types and patterns. 

The type of projects we have in mind include knitting a cotton dishcloth or a scarf. Or you could start by knitting a sample square of varying stitches.  Or, you are welcome to come along with an existing project.  A small selection of stitch patterns will be supplied.

Note: Materials and needles will be supplied for your first class although you are welcome to bring materials or existing project.
