Knitting know-how workshops

knitting-know-how“Don’t let your awkwardness worry you; or the sliding about of needles, you are their boss and they know it.” (Elizabeth Zimmerman, Knitter’s Almanac)

I’ve been getting ready for a new series of workshops at New Brewery Arts in February. The classes will be based on the throw that I designed for The Art of Knitting, using increases and decreases to make squares, except this time we’ll be using different colours and yarn, making it in Rowan Tweed’s muted palette. We’ll look at diagonals, entrelac and short-rows, all those things that can put you off before you even start. This course will make you more confident and in charge of your needles. I’m really looking forward to meeting a new group of knitters.

There’s been a change of dates, workshops now start on Wed Feb 22 and are every week until Wed Mar 22, 2017. That gives people more time to sign up, yay!

Tutor: Katy Bevan (that’s me)
Date & Time: Wednesday afternoons, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Venue: Albright Studio, New Brewery Arts
REF: sc37-17
PRICE: £90.00

      Hi Caroline, Square five is knitted on the diagonal and the colour changes are always on the same side. When you have a new yarn, leave a short length and just start with the new colour, weaving the loose end into each stitch for about 4 or 5 stitches. When you need a colour already used, just pick up that colour from the edge, making sure not to pull it too tight.
      Glad you’re enjoying the throw.
