Knitting for Beginners (3-week course)
Enjoy three weeks learning all the knitting essentials! Debbie will teach you all you need to know to get started with your first knitting projects.
You’ll make 3 small, fun projects, each one specifically designed to allow you to practice your skills as you learn.
No knitting skills are required – Debbie will be starting right at the beginning. Have some experience or returning to knitting? This course is also a great refresher.
What you will learn:
- Casting on
- Cast off
- Finishing and seaming
- How to follow a knitting pattern
- Tension (gauge) and why it matters
- Tips and tricks for avoiding common mistakes (and how to fix them!)
All materials are included – we provide quality materials – lovely yarn, knitting needles, comprehensive professionally illustrated photo handouts and a selection of Debbie’s own, exclusive patterns. We also include tea, coffee and biccies!
