Continental Knitting *

Saturday 16 November | 9h30-12h30 | Julie | £25

This workshop will teach you how to knit continental style, holding the yarn in the left hand and picking up your stitches. If you are a crocheter wanting to learn how to knit, this may be a more intuitive approach for you; but even experienced knitters can benefit from being able to switch between methods: alternative movements may help relieve wrist pain, and some people maintain that continental knitting allows you to work much faster.

Yarn provided, please bring a pair of 4mm needles.

 

Knitting in the Round **

Saturday 16 November | 13h00-16h00 | Julie | £25

By knitting in the round you produce seamless knitting which can be used for a wide variety of projects including socks and sleeves. We will show you the different options of how to knit in the round whether it is on double-pointed or circular needles or using the magic loop method. (Although this class is suitable for relative beginners, you will already need to know the basic knit and purl stitches).

Yarn included, bring a pair of 4mm double-pointed needles.
