Knitting for Beginners


Knitting is one of those crafts that does so much more than ‘it says on the tin’!
Apart from being totally absorbing, creative and most importantly, enjoyable, it is good for mind, body and soul! It’s not just me saying that, it has been scientifically tested and proven! (See for more information)
Knitting helps you to relax, helps lower blood pressure and helps restore confidence, amongst other things. What’s even better, is that you get something really beautiful at the end of the process.

On our beginner’s course you will learn how to cast on, cast off, knit, purl, increase and decrease, knit ‘in the round’, work cables and much more. We make a different project each week, so by the time you have finished you will have made a flower brooch, a washcloth, fingerless mittens and a hat. Each week we add to the skills you have learnt and by the end you will be confident enough to tackle different projects. All yarns, needles and patterns are included.

4 Week Course, Tuesday Mornings, 10.30-12.30. March 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd.
