Increasing and Decreasing in Knitting:
For the intermediate knitter, this lesson is going to be the key to making your makes look and feel that bit more professional. After the workshop you'll be able to work twelve different increases and decreases and, more importantly, know why to use each one so you can swap and change in your patterns for the best effect. Swapping an increase or decrease is one of those neat little tricks which advanced knitters take for grant but makes all the difference to the finished piece.
This class is suitable for any curious person who can knit, purl, cast on and cast off. You'll want to bring some 4mm needles and some smooth DK yarn - a basic acrylic, wool/acrylic blend or superwash wool in a light colour should be fine. You can buy on the day if you don't have anything suitable.
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 evening classes start at 6.30pm sharp and finish at 8.30pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but feel free to bring your own if you have fancy or unusual teas/milks/sweeteners.
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).
