This workshop is for complete beginners. You will learn how to cast on and cast off, knit and purl stitches, the difference between stocking stitch, garter stitch and how to knit rib and stripes. In the workshop you will begin a pair of fingerless mitts and at the end of the day have all the skills you need to finish them off at home. Melanie will give you ideas for what to knit next. Participants need to bring a pair of 7mm needles.
