Chunky Knit Workshop: 1/2 Day (Melbourne) (date to be advised)
Chunky knitting fundamentals with Linda Reeve
Create your own chunk of cosy 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 and 'purl' 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.

Note: the wool we will be using gets fluffy, and we sit in some interesting positions. Please wear something comfortable and relaxed, ideally long pants

We supply everything you need to complete your gorgeous chunky master piece, and full instructions so you can complete your work at home, or start a new piece:
Scarf: 1kg bump of pure Australian Merino wool, chunky knit pattern book to take home, and loan needles for the workshop. Please choose your colour as you book.
Blanket: 3 x1kg bumps of pure Australian Merino wool, chunky knit pattern book to take home, and your own set of giant needles for the workshop.
(Finished blanket will be approx 110cm x 140cm) Please choose your colour as you book.
We will be using 100% Australian merino, un-spun for the most luxurious silky softness. Towards the end of the workshop we will discuss felting for durability and how to go about it at home.
Note- extra wool and needles are available to buy, please contact us to place an order to collect on the day.
We believe tea, coffee, hot chocolate and delicious treats are essential to producing great knitting, so we will have a table of snacks to keep our energy up during the afternoon.
Unfortunately we can't cater for specific dietary needs, but we should have some vegan and GF options.
