Making on Mondays

18+; Mondays 19.30 - 21.30

6th January - 30th March (12 weeks, £264) Knitting has proven to be good for your well-being, your health, your mind, and it's great fun and practical. Come and find out what you have been missing and learn how to knit! We will learn how to knit a hat as our first project concentrating on how to cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, to cast off and finish seams. Once you have mastered the hat, you will move onto learning how to cable by making your own neck wrap including how to make buttonholes and learn textured stitches. We will continue to build on knitting skills, confidence and knowledge whilst making mittens and spend the last part of the course knitting with colour whilst making a beautiful baby blanket, the perfect gift for a new-born. We will use knitted squares, giving us the opportunity to try traditional and modern colour patterns. We will learn a variety of techniques from simple stripes to polka dots and more complex Fair Isle designs. Patterns, knitting needles and yarn supplied for the hat; additional supplies will need to be purchased for remaining projects.
