Summer Sweater Club

23 April @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£110

This five-part course takes place on 23rd  and 30 April, 9th and 14th and 21st May 2020.

Start (and finish) knitting a sweater? Yes you can!

If you’ve conquered the basics of casting on, purling, knitting and binding off, then you’re ready to move on and  make a start on your first garment and this set of classes will take you all the way.

Over 5 weekly classes we will work through knitting your choice of top-down sweater or cardigan pattern* together, step by step, so that by the end you will have a finished garment and the confidence and knowledge to get going on knitting many more.

Each week we will guide you through the garment construction techniques that your pattern requires. Providing you can continue knitting between the classes, your brand new hand knitted sweater will be in sight by the end of the 5 weeks.

During the course you will learn how to:

  • choose the right yarn for your pattern
  • measure yourself correctly to choose the right size for the pattern you want to knit
  • swatch and measure your knitting gauge
  • read and follow the pattern and its knitting terminology
  • master the stitches and techniques used in the pattern
  • complete the garment with appropriate finishing techniques and blocking

The course fee includes tuition and pattern instruction. Patterns, needles and yarn are available to purchase separately with a 10% participant’s discount.

*As the course is based on knitting a top-down garment, students are encouraged to select a pattern from the summer-weight or winter-weight lists below before the course commences on 23rd April. Help and advice with choosing patterns is always available in the shop.
