Class One – Get going straight away – learn cast on, knit stitch, and cast off. Start your toy rabbit.

You will have the option to use either DK or Aran yarn on different-sized needles.
Here I will also introduce you to circular needles.
And you will learn how to read a commercial pattern whilst advancing your understanding of your own knitting construction.
In Module 3, now you have begun to read a pattern and can increase and decrease.
You will move on to making a pair of mittens, for an adult or a child.
You will make your first garment – a slipover or vest or sleeveless summer top with a choice of sizes and styles.
You will get more practice at reading your knitting and begin to learn how to correct mistakes. Even the greatest expert knitters make mistakes, the skill is to know how to correct them.
In Module 4, you will move on to explore knitting on circular needles.
We will consider the pros and cons of circular needles and use them to accommodate larger pieces of work.
You will begin to explore simple lace patterns and start work on a lace pattern triangular shawl.
We will use stitch markers, stitch and row counting methods, and ‘life lines’ to keep the pattern on track and design a neat edging for your shawl.
In Module 5, you will start planning and casting on your first sweater.
You will have a choice of method and size for this piece of work and can make anything from new baby to large adult size, jumper, or cardigan.
The techniques and skills are the same no matter what the size.
Some people prefer to make a cot blanket at this stage.
Either way, there will be support for whatever inspires you.
In Module 6, we will introduce the skill of knitting cables,
This produces an impressive piece of work but is actually easy to learn and straightforward to knit once you know the basics.

Or something else of your choice!
