Knitting in the round with Samira

  • The Wool Shop The Wool Shop, 6 High Street Galashiels United Kingdom (map)

In this workshop, participants will learn the different methods of knitting in the round using both 4 double pointed needles, and one long circular needle, with the Magic Loop technique.

We will go through casting on on double pointed needles, principles of knitting in the round, and casting off, before casting on again with a long circular, working in the round using the Magic Loop technique, and casting off.

Materials required are:

• 1 set of 4mm double pointed needles (preferably wooden needles so they are not too slippery)

• A 4mm circular needle, 100-120cm long (no shorter than 80cm!)

• 50g of light colour DK wool

£15 per person (materials not included but can be purchased in store on the day)
