Beginners Machine knitting

Learn the basics and get started with your knitting machine. 

 

This two hour workshop will introduce you to the basics of machine knitting, perfect for the absolute beginner.  

This workshop will be taught using a Brother KH881 knitting machine but most information will translate to a variety of makes and models of knitting machine.  A combination of videos and live guidance will take you from threading-up to knitting swatches, finishing with the all-important casting-off, with time for a general Q&A at the end of the session.

We will go through how the machine works, casting on and off as well as some simple but effective decorative techniques such as stripes, lace holes and ladders. 

At the end of the workshop you will have a good working knowledge of the basic functions of your knitting machine and you will be able to cast on, knit stripes and cast off!   

The cost of this 2 hour workshop is just £25 per person
