Ask a question

  • 3 x Monday Evenings: 7pm - 9pm

    In this KAL-Course (KAL= Knit-a-long) you will finally learn what's involved in knitting a gorgeous Top Down (no seaming!) Sweater! This KAL-Course is based on the fabulous Dead Easy pattern by Karin Fernandes (@karinsaray).

    This is the perfect first Top Down Sweater project for a gorgeous wearable (cherishable) sweater and jumping board for even more fabulous garments in your knitty future!

    During the 3 workshop style lessons you will learn the following techniques. There will be set (fun!) homework between classes. 
    •  Knit a sweater using the top-down construction 
    •  Circular needles/magic loop technique 
    •  Increase, decrease, short rows 
    •  Separate stitches 
    •  Pick up stitches
    •  Finishing
    • Class Duration:
      3 x 2 hour classes, 7pm - 9pm. Please arrive at least 20 mins before the first class to choose your yarn (so we can wind it for you. Or better still, on a pre-class day, so we don't rush your choice). We will not delay the class or instruction for latecomers.

      Prior Experience:
      Basic knit skills - you should be able to cast on, knit and purl.

      Class Materials: 
      The pattern is included. You will need to purchase/bring yarn and needles. You will also need stitch markers.

      10% discount on yarn and/or tools purchased for the KAL-Course. 

      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.

    • About Nuria:

      My name is Nuria and I'm from Barcelona. Almost 13 years ago I married my lovely Aussie boy and we've managed to have 2 gorgeous kids together, My little Aussie man and 12 years old Aiden and my gorgeous and very determined little english lady Ari who is 8!

      Six years ago we embraced a big adventure and moved to London from Barcelona. And here we are, three years later, happy and loving this little adorable place that is Kew (Richmond) where we live.

      So, now that I can definitely say that my family is all settled, it's time for me to start my own big adventure and share my little creation:Yaya Knits & Bobs

      Yayaknits is about sharing and teaching people to knit and crochet, along with the opportunity to purchase hand-made knit and crochet products that I can design for you or we can design together. 

      The inspiration for Yayaknits comes mainly from my grandmother Carmen who we would call Yaya. She was an amazing, brave and inspiring woman who taught me as a little girl all the knitting and crochet skills she was passionate about. I would like to share this passion to all that want to learn.
