Difficulty rating: beginner – first projects
Materials: We provide a set of bamboo needles, you need to bring some yarn (see description below)
A great first project – all you need to know for this class is the knit stitch. We will learn how to make mitred squares which are knit from cross ways and guaranteed to be perfect squares. Then we will learn how to join them together to make a cushion or blanket. You should bring some DK weight yarn – anything that says on the label that it can be knit with 4mm needles. To give your finished item a patchwork effect you can use several different colours, but they must be the same weight of yarn. This is also a great project for yarn leftovers – each square uses around 15g of yarn and measures 13cm x 13cm.
