Chunky blanket knitting basics with Linda Reeve
Create a cosy chunk of snuggle time and indulge in some gentle good fun while learning the basics of chunky knitting, and begin your own chunky knit 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 cover the fundamental knit and purls stitches plus cast on and off. Suggest any non-knitting guests check out some youtube 'how to knit' video's before your workshop.

You will start your chunky knit throw using giant needles and our pure Australian Merino wool (sourced locally).
At the end of your workshop you will be able to cast on and off (start & finish) using giant knitting needles, knit garter stitch PLUS identify what went wrong and how to fix it.
