Beginners knitting workshop and cream tea in a beautiful, unspoilt Cotswold village.
Designed for the complete beginner this Cotswold knitting experience will teach you the basic knitting skills of casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, increasing and decreasing and casting off. You will make a simple test square and then use the skills you have learned to start a simple twisted scarf or a pairt of slippers in chunky yarn. At the end of the course there is time to relax and celebrate your new found skill with a glass of Prosecco and a delicious cream tea.
This workshop includes either a Chunky scarf or Cosy slippers knitting kit. Each kit contains everything you need including wooden knitting needles, sewing needle and full step-bystep instructions.
We have been selling our Charlie & Hannah brand of 'Learn to knit' kits through notonthehighstreet for three years. They are designed for both complete beginners and inexperienced knitters and we are practiced in teaching simple knitting skills.
