Description

KNIT THIS SIMPLE SUPER CHUNKY BOBBLE HAT!

Come and enjoy this friendly and relaxed handknit workshop at our cosy cottage studio in Oxfordshire, England!

The aim of this workshop is for you to go home with a super chunky and very cosy bobble hat for the winter! ....Once you know how to knit this hat, you could make some for your friends and family for Christmas!

This simple stocking stitch hat is the perfect project for new knitters and refreshers who can work a simple knit stitch and a simple purl stitch on a pair of single pointed needles.

I will help you to cast on neatly, work to tension so your knitting looks great, decrease for the crown, sew up a beautiful invisible seam, make and attach a pompom.

If you an absolute beginner do sign up to my 2 hour Learn To Knit - First Steps Workshop ahead of this workshop.

This workshop will have a maximum of 6 people to ensure you get lots of one to one help and advice.

FAQs

What skill level is this workshop?

This single workshop is suitable for new knitters and refreshers, but not absolute beginners. If you can already work a simple knit stitch, and a simple purl stitch on a pair of single pointed needles you will be able to knit this bobble hat with my help. Intermediate knitters are also very welcome.

Our cosy cottage studio is set within the grounds of Eynsham Hall in a creative and inspiring community of fine artists, designers and crafts people. We love it here..... and we hope you do too!

The studio is a working design studio for most of the week, but we open it up for some workshops throughout the month as we love to teach too!
