Friendly and fun online knitting workshops – with a professional designer!
If you’re wanting to improve your knitting, then I can for sure help. I’ve taken my ten years of knitting experience and used them to create an absolute shedload of online knitting workshops that’ll help you knit the things you want to be knitting.
Whether you want to take on stranded colourwork, have a go at lace knitting, learn how to fix your mistakes, or something else – chances are I’ve got an online workshop for you. And if I don’t, then drop me a line and let me know what you’re after, as I’m always happy to add new knitting techniques to my list of workshops.
Online knitting workshops coming up soon
- De-scarying Lacework – Tues 2 Nov
- De-scarying cable knitting – Tues 30 Nov
Tuesday 2 November, 8pm (GMT)
Lace knitting is just lovely, isn’t is? You might have noticed I use it in quite a lot of my designs, and that’s because it’s just bloomin’ wonderful. But, it can be a bit intimidating, so let me de-scary it for you.
During this workshop we’ll cover:
- Reading lace charts
- Commonly-used stitches, how to work them, and what they look like
- Fixing mistakes with lifelines and “tink”ing (knitting backwards)
- How to block and finish your lace knits to get them looking tip-top.
Attendees will get a handy little info pack with resources, links, and tips covering everything that’s in the workshop. And there will also be an exclusive discount code valid on all Woolly Badger knitting patterns – of which there are more than a few that feature lace!
De-scarying cable knitting
Tuesday 30 November, 8pm (GMT)
In this 90-min online workshop we’ll be learning how to knit cables like an absolute boss. Cable knitting is an absolute classic – and it’s a heck of a lot easier than it looks.
During this session we’ll talk about:
- What the heck cables are, and how they behave in knitted fabric
- How to decipher charts, abbreviations, and symbols
- Working a cable the traditional way (with a cable needle) and the sneaky cheat’s way (without a cable needle)
- How to fix a cable that crosses the wrong way
As always, attendees will get a lovely old handout packed full of information and recommendations of further things to look at. And they’ll also get a little cable sampler, which could be worked up into a cowl or scarf if the cable bug really strikes.
