Knitting for Beginners!

If you’re new to knitting or are just starting to find your way, come and join me for a Saturday afternoon of gentle introduction to knitting.

Learn the fundamental knit and purl stitches, how to cast on and off, how to choose the right yarn and what to do with your first piece of knitting. My approach combines technical know-how with calm encouragement and stress-reducing meditation.

Knitting needles, merino wool yarn and class notes are provided.

Min 2, max 6 students.

Cost: €60 incl IVA and materials.

 

Please let me know if you have any particular dietary requirements or allergies.
