Beginner (the basics)

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or looking to refresh your skills, the ‘Beginner’ Class’ will give you a firm grounding in the basics of machine knitting. Beginner’ Classes require no previous knowledge of knitwear or knitting machinery.

You’ll gain an understanding of how the machine works and what it can do, with plenty of time to practise and experiment.

You will learn: casting on and off – knitting stripes – increasing and decreasing the knitting’s width – lace holes – ladders.

You’ll create a range of samples to take away and learn from.

The machines used on the course will be Brother knitting machines. All equipment and yarns will be provided, along with technical notes with instructions to go with your class.
