We are offering two introductory courses – each consists of two 90 minutes sessions as follows:
Saturday 27th Feb 3 to 4.30pm
Get Started – Knitting — takes you through casting on, knitting simple garter stitch and casting off. The aim is that you are able to make a square by the end of the session.
Saturday 5th March 3 to 4.30pm
Moving on – Knitting – introduces the knitter to purling, ribbing, increases/decreases, as well as following a simple pattern.
Saturday 12th March 3 to 4.30pm
Get started – Crochet – takes you through the first few steps and basic stitches. You should be able to make a simple granny square by the end of the session.
Saturday 19th March 3 to 4.30pm
Moving on – Crochet – introduces more stitches, reading a pattern, increasing and decreasing. We will aim to make a flower square or small crocheted bowl by the end of the session.
Each course costs 30 pounds per person for the 2 ninety minute sessions, and includes yarn, needles/hooks, a simple project bag, tea/coffee and biscuits. We will need 6 people per course to run. If you pay in advance the cost is £28.
Phone 01706 222116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
If the classes are popular, I’d plan to run them throughout the year with additional shorter classes for sock knitting, finishing your project, Tunisian crochet, and more.
