The course will consist of 6 evening sessions on Wednesday evenings from 8.00 to 10.00 pm.

The fee will be € 12.50 per person per session.

Maximum size of the group will be 6 persons, to allow for sufficient time for each of you individually. In advance to the course I will ask you a couple of questions to make an assessment of your level of experience and to find out what kind of project you would like to create within the timeframe of the course.

I can help you find a suitable pattern. We are aiming for everyone to leave the course with at least 1 finished knitted product.

The following techniques will be taught:

-casting on

-knitting even (garter stitch)

-purling (stockinette stitch)

Depending on the level and the aspirations of the participants we can also explore the following techniques:
