Learn to Knit 1
Knitting is such a joy - don't let it pass you by! You'll learn to cast on, knit, purl, cast off and how to sew up to finish your item. We'll be making some cute fingerless mitts, perfect for a little bit of extra warmth over Christmas and the new year. You'll get some needles, enough yarn to knit two pairs of mitts, a pattern that is endlessly adjustable and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits.
This class is suitable for absolute beginners or those who want to brush up on long forgotten skills. Left handers, don't worry, we cater for you too.
Learn to Knit 2
Once you've mastered the basics you'll want to learn how to increase, decrease, introduce new colours and knit in the round. Then you'll be good to go on your first garment! We'll make an adult hat that we'll knit in the round. You'll get some needles, enough yarn for your hat and another endlessly adjustable pattern. Don't forget the tea, coffee and biscuits!
This class is suitable for those who have been on our Learn to Knit 1 class, those who know how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off or those who just need reminding a little bit.
Buy them both together and get a Â£5 discount!
If you're attending both classes, please choose that option rather than booking two single classes.
Please note, if there aren't any dates available that means that they've been sold out. Feel free to contact us but there's not usually anything we can do. I suggest following us on Facebook and signing up the the mailing list so that you hear first about the lessons and then book as soon as you can!!
All classes start at 10.30am sharp and finish at 3pm not so sharp... We have a half an hour lunch which I have to be strict about because four hours is a lot of finger work! You'll probably want to bring a lunch too.
All classes are taught by the magnificent Eleanor Burke, manager here at Knit Nottingham, who is an obsessive knitter, crocheter and yarn lover with the patience of a saint! Kids and young adults are welcome but she does have a penchant for fruity language...
Full payment is to be made in advance. Lessons are non-refundable – please only book if you're are going to be available on that date. In the case of illness please let us know as soon as possible and before the lesson begins and we will endeavour to book you onto an appropriate alternate date but this won't always be possible and we reserve the right not to as the lessons are sold as non-refundable. Lessons are transferable so if you can't come you can send a friend instead (ideally, you'd let me know so I can write that in the diary).
