    This 2 session course of knitting classes will be everything you need to know to get you going with your new hobby.  Designed for total newbies, or those who are very rusty - no experience necessary!

    Our wonderful instructor, Ingrid, will teach you:

    • The basic understanding of knitted fabrics

    • Cast on

    • Knit

    • Purl

    • Garter Stitch

    • Stocking Stitch

    • Joining a new colour

    • How to make a button hole

    • Cast off

    • Darning in your ends

    By the end of the 2 sessions you will have a beautiful, completely wearable uni-sex knitted cowl with optional buttons!

  • Class Duration:
    2 hours per class, 11am - 1pm, 2 consecutive weeks. Please arrive at least 15 mins before class time on Week 1 to choose your yarn - or better still on a day before class day.

    Prior Experience:

    Class Materials: 
    You will require 4.5mm - 5mm circular/straight needles and around 100g of Worsted Weight Yarn. We encourage you to choose from our large selection of yarn before the course begins (preferably on a day before class day so you are not rushed). 

    Yarn is not included within the lessons fee because we don't want to restrict the choices available to you across our colour/fibre and budget range.

    10% discount on yarn and buttons purchased for your custom cowl.

    We are sorry but we cannot offer refunds on classes if you are unable to attend for whatever reason, unless we are able to refill your spot.

    We require a minimum of 3 students to run this course, and reserve the right to cancel the course if we cannot meet this minimum.

    Out of respect for your fellow participants, please don't be late. 
    Please do not bring any pets, kids or other dependents to the lesson.

    Classes are run upstairs with access via a spiral staircase.
