Knitting Classes

Lesson 1 - 20th February

LEARN THE BASIC KNITTING SKILLS and let the sky be the limit!

Skills needed:

none ;o)

Skills learned:

This week you will learn to cast on, knit, purl, change yarn, cast off and weave in yarn ends. Then we’ll do some simple increases, decreases and show you how to pick up stitches.

Materials needed:

Yarn - any amount, any weight will do. We will practice knitting a sample square, so scrap yarn will do.
Needles - Provided by Agnieszka /as she has tons and tons of needles at home and only knits with 2 at a time ;o)/
Tapestry needle and scissors, which can be shared between people.


The class will teach the continental knitting (not British).

There will be no rhymes to memorise, unless we make up something as we go ;o)
