Skills needed: You will need to know how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off.

I love sewing my knitted items together! I treat my knitted pieces as knitting and sew together as such, rather than treat them like cloth and then get disappointed with uneven edges. When you treat a hand knit as a hand knit, the picking up of stitches and sewing together is the most fun! I share these techniques in this class so sewing up becomes a joy.

Skills learnt: This half day class covers half of the things we get to do on the full day workshop however it does include the good basics that you need to succesfully complete a hand knit, including the importance of tension, decreasing and increasing, how to pick up stitches, live stitches and reading your knitting, use different sewing up techniques for stocking stitch, garter stitch and moss stitch, join a cast off edge to a side seam.

Materials included in cost: Yarn (to collect before workshop) and pattern, a cup of tea or coffee for refreshment.

Materials to bring: 3.75mm and 4mm needles, scissors, darning needle and pen and paper if you wanted to make notes.

Please note: There is a bit of easy homework to complete before this class. This will be given at time of booking.
