Join Chrissie Ferbrache, for a four week course in how to knit.
Over the course of the 4 weeks you will learn knitting skills with the view to work on a small knitted project. On the first session you will receive a new ball of wool, a pair of needles and some handouts about knitting. You will also be invited into a Whatsapp chat support group so that you can develop your knitting at your own pace at home. Be reassured that the skills you learn will be at your own pace and you will be supported in learning the basic techniques to be able to knit.
The course will teach the following techniques: casting on and off, knitting, purling, shaping techniques, reading a knitting pattern and sewing the product together. The two techniques of kitting and purling can be applied in different variations to learn different stitches such as garter stitch, stocking stitch and rib stitch. Over the course of the four weeks you will also learn how to correct any errors that occurs as a beginner. Chrissie will show you all of these things and you will be able to apply them to a small project of your choice.
