Workshop: KNIT in the round (2.5 hours)
In this class we will learn how to knit in the round using the Magic Loop technique. We will start (and hopefully finish) an egg cosy with rib band topped off by a pom pom! After this class you should be able to tackle a full size hat. We will cover casting on, knitting various stitch patterns, decreasing, and casting off.
Please bring along to class: A pair of circular needles – 5.5mm or bigger with 80 or 120cm cable. Also a wool selection with which you wish to work, suitable for your needle size. Alternatively you can purchase these items in store when you arrive.
Prerequisites: Ability to knit and purl
