Have you ever wanted to hold the yarn in your other hand to make colour work easier or to speed up your moss stitch? This workshop will take the mystery out of knitting continental style (with the yarn held in the left hand) and you will knit pretty Fingerless Mitts in the process. Techniques will include continental knit and purl stitches, shaping, lace stitches and the Norwegian purl stitch.

The workshop will be held in our Chapel Allerton shop, at 180 Harrogate Road, Leeds, LS7 4NZ
