Chunky Knit Workshop - Melbourne

Chunky Knit Workshop - Melbourne

Create your own chunk of cosiness just in time for winter and indulge in some gentle good fun while knitting a chunky knit scarf or blanket. 

A basic knowledge of knitting techniques will enhance your experience, but don't panic if you have never picked up a set of needles before, we will go through the basic techniques.

At the end of your workshop you will be able to cast on and off (start & finish) and master the 'knit' stitch all on your giant needles. 

No need to bring anything, all your materials will be supplied. We do encourage you to bring a sense of humour and a taste for snacks. There is always plenty of laughs and a delicious array of treats to keep us going.
