The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, 13th – 16th March 2014
As I mentioned a short while ago, I am teaching as part of the Prima Make & Take Workshops at Olympia in March. I can now tell you all about my second class in which I am going to take the fear out of double pointed needles! I am really looking forward to teaching you how to tame the yarn covered hedgehog, that can be knitting in the round on dpn’s. Keep reading for how you can win a pair of tickets to the Knitting & Stitching show.
Knit a Napkin Ring with Double Pointed Needles – Class code 129
Taking the fear out of Double Pointed Needles and knit a Napkin Ring
Sunday 16th March 2014
2.15 – 3.15
Have you ever watched in orr as others knit their way around socks and mittens using double pointed needles? Need some help?
During this hour long class I will teach you how to cast on using double pointed needles, show you how to join your work into the round and get you knitting in the round with confidence. You will knit yourself a napkin ring with the materials provided. We will also discuss working from charts and the pro’s and con’s of knitting in the round. Come and learn a new skill and have some fun with other yarn loving dare devils.
The pattern and yarn you will need for your project. (Needles are available to borrow, if you would like to bring your own you will need a set of four 3.25mm double pointed needles).
The kit is kindly sponsored by Stylecraft Yarns.
The class costs just £10 and includes the kit.
To enjoy this class you will need to be able to knit and purl.
You can book your place online or call 0844 848 0159 (the website is a little confusing and I would highly recommend phoning to book your tickets. Also note that the £10 class fee does not include your entry ticket to the venue).
So you want to get your hands on a free pair of entry tickets for the show?
