Event description

Description

Would you like to move your knitting skills on to the next level? If you can cast on and off, knit and purl, but would like to learn how to read a pattern, pick up stitches neatly, increase and decrease, this is the course for you.

We will be working in Retreat by West Yorkshire Spinners, which is a chunky pure wool blended from Blue Faced Leicester and Kerry Hill.

At the first session, you will be provided with the Retreat pattern book, six balls of Retreat, knitting needles and a stitch holder. Six balls will allow you to knit the smallest sizes. If you are making a larger jumper, you will need to purchase additional balls at £6.50 each at the first class (the largest size, to fit bust 127cm / 50" takes twelve balls).

In the first session, you will choose your wool, read through the pattern, and make a start on your jumper. You will then be able to go away and work on your jumper independently. Subsequent sessions will be booked for periods of two hours to offer support with your jumper. Dates for these sessions will be agreed with the participants at the time. Support sessions will be charged at £5.00 each, per our usual Knit and Natter rates.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and homemade cake are included.

Prior to the class, you will need to choose which colours you want to work in. The full range can be found by pasting this link into your browser:

We will need to know which of your three colours will be at the top of your jumper. We also need to know which size you would like to make. This will allow us to ensure that your chosen wool is in stock.

For bust 28" to 34", six balls will be needed (all wool included in class price).

For bust 36" to 42", nine balls will be needed (£19.50 extra to pay).

For bust 44" to 50", nine balls will be needed (£39.00 extra to pay).
