Start your journey into the wonderful world of knitting. You will be guided through the basic techniques of cast on and cast off, the first knit and purl stitches and begin working on small swatches. We will discuss the technical things, like yarn and needle sizes and look at simple commercial patterns.

The day is very hands on and continued practice is encouraged throughout.

Suitable for complete beginners or those looking to go back to basics.
