Classes

UNFORTUNATELY ALL OUR CLASSES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

 

INTRO TO SOCK KNITTING       1pm - 3pm Saturday 4th & 18th April & 2nd May   

Cost $180 which includes yarn and needles

Beginning on Saturday April 4th and continuing on April 18th and May 2nd we will be teaching our Introduction to Sock Knitting using a classic top down sock pattern. Over the course of 3 two hour lessons we teach top down socks using fingering weight sock yarn on bamboo double pointed needles.

The first class covers the anatomy of a sock, cast on methods and getting you started on the cuff.

Lesson two covers heal turn and instep shaping.

Lesson three covers knitting the foot and kitchener stitch/grafting the toe.

Having the classes over a period of three alternate weeks gives the student a chance to grasp the techniques and keep their own pace. If you find that you are whizzing through it also gives you a chance to cast on the second sock.

You must be able to attend all three lessons. Also if help is needed during the period between classes we are available at the shop for ongoing help. 

Please ring to book in 0438 374364. You can also book online here

Full payment is required at the time of booking. If the class is cancelled for any reason a full refund will be given. Any cancellations on the students behalf must be made at least 10 days ahead for a refund. A booking fee of $10 will be deducted.

 

Beginners Brioche Hat      Saturday March 21st   12.30pm - 3.30pm

Cost $80 which includes yarn and needles

This is a fun uncomplicated introduction to Brioche knitting. The hat that you will knit is just one colour and we only use the knitting brioche stitch or bark as it is known. The piece is knitted flat so there is nothing complicated for the beginner and it can be knitted on straight or circular needles, whichever you prefer. 

You can also bring along some scrap 8ply yarn and 4mm needles so that we can cover purl brioche or burp as it is known. If there is time we will also cover increases and decreases.

Please ring the shop to book in 0438 374364. Full payment is required at the time of booking. You can also book online here
