Zero to Knit Kit

£80.00

YES, you can learn to knit, and yes we’ve got everything parceled up here to get you started.

Knitwear designer and teacher, Carol Feller has devised a series of video knitting tutorials that will take you on a cleverly designed path through all the techniques and terms you need to begin making your own way with knitting.

The Zero to Knit course will teach you how to:

  • cast on
  • knit and purl
  • knit flat and knit in the round
  • shape your fabric with increases and decreases
  • cast off and finish off your work

Throughout each module, Carol will develop your knitterly understanding by explaining how the anatomy of the knitted stitch relates to different stitches and techniques, how the finished fabric is affected by the fibre and thickness of yarn that you use, and how to choose the right needles for your project.

By the end of the Zero to Knit course, you will have completed 3 knitting projects.

Your Zero to Knit kit contains everything you need to make your way through Carol’s course:

  • A code for you to access the Starter Series Zero to Knit videos
  • 2 x 100g of WYSpinners Shetland Croft wool (please select a shade from the options below).

WYS Croft Shetland Colours × 2

Fibre: 100% Shetland Wool
Yardage: 166m per 100g skein
Gauge: 18 stitches to 10cm
Recommended Needle size: 5mm

West Yorkshire Spinners Croft is produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength.

Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands, and has provided the WYS design team with the production and colour inspiration for this exciting range of aran weight yarn. Croft Shetland Colours is a 3 strand, semi worsted spun aran weight non super wash yarn. it’s particularly suitable for the sort of sweaters and accessories that you would wear for winter walks where warmth and coyness is a priority. Whilst this yarn is not what we would call scratchy, we wouldn’t recommend it for wearing next to the skin for all but the hardiest ramblers. The firm but bouncy spin of this yarn makes it great for cabled and textured projects.
