Learn to Knit Continental

Cookston Crafts, Ellon

Thursday 16th May 2019



The class takes place in Cookston Crafts workshop space, on the outskirts of Ellon, Aberdeenshire. This will be a fun, wecoming class and is suitable for beginners. 

Come along for a knit and a blether.  Bring some double knit or aran weight wool along with the appropriate pins, either straight or circular.  Or why not choose some gorgeous hand dyed yarn from Cookston Crafts?  You’ll need to bring appropriate needles for that (but there’s sure to be spares available in the drawer!)

I'll show you how to knit in the continental style – that’s where you hold the yarn in your left hand and “pick” it with the right needle. You’ll be amazed at how quick it is. Once you have mastered this it can transform your colour work projects as you can hold a colour in each hand.   A glass of bucks fizz or tea/coffee will be provided.
