Beginners Machine Knitting Day Course - 13th May 2017

£65.00

Kate has written a day course to introduce you to machine knitting.

It aims to be a relaxed day and offers the opportunity to spend a day in the workshop in Cumbria.

The day will run from 10:30 - 4:30 and will cover:

  • Starting and finishing a piece
  • How the machine works, and different tools
  • Shaping - increasing and decreasing
  • Creating stripes
  • Creating texture using hand techniques
  • Blocking and pressing your knitting
  • Linking panels of knit together

At the end of the day you should have a few panels of fabric to take away with you.

Machines and yarn provided! The workshop is taught on a table top domestic knitting machine, standard gauge. If you handknit, we will be using yarn which is the equivalent of 2ply/laceweight.

Workshop is suitable as an introduction to machine knitting, as a refresher, or just as a fun course to take for pleasure.

Four places on each course. Three places left on this date. If you have a friend or two and wish to book another date instead, please get in touch.

Any queries or questions, don't hesitate to contact Kate on email kate@oubasknitwear.co.uk.
