Participants need to knit two squares in a light coloured 8 ply, prior to the workshop (instructions will be given on enrolment). We will use these squares to learn about tension, mattress stitch seaming and knitting up stitches (for a neck or front band). I will review cast-on and off techniques and include lots of little tips and tricks to give your work a professional finish.
What you will learn:
- casting on and casting off
- measuring tension and the importance of working a tension swatch
- mattress stitch seam
- joining two garter stitch edges
- knitting up stitches along a straight edge
- knitting up stitches on a shaped edge
- working buttonholes
What you will get:

- expert tuition from an experienced knitting teacher
Participants need to bring along their own knitting needles and extra yarn, but any other equipment (scissors, sewing needle) will be provided to use during the workshop
