Knit the Sheep Jumper – September!
This is the perfect introduction for those curious about extending their knitting knowledge with a bit of colour work into a garment!
Make Town will provide the pattern for the jumper and you just need to bring a selection of yarn!
What's the plan Stan?
4 sessions – We will meet at 6:30pm – 8:30pm
- Thursday 1st Sept
- Thursday 6th Oct

During the sessions learn about
- different fibres, yarns and weights suitable for knitting

- how to read a chart, tension swatch, change colours, rib stitch, centre pull balls tension, how to weave in your tails and mattress stitch
- how to measure and count your rows and stitches in your work

It sounds like a lot, but these are great blocks of learning that get built in a timely and engaging pace!
What do I bring?
Make Town will provide you with a printed pattern.
You will need to provide
- 5mm & 6mm needles
- variety of Aran or chunky weight yarn approx 1000mts
Bring in your yarn stash and we can help you pick a good combo to work with! A great way to use up scraps and odds and ends of other projects.

It’s gonna be a doozy!
I love Make Town - I did the first Sheep Jumper workshop after not knitting for several years and it's motivated me to take up knitting again!
The BEST! Brooke is such an amazing teacher: knowledgeable, calm, patient, super-super-super skilled and generally brilliant.
Brooke brings so much joy to knitting and was on hand with loads of tips and tricks about knitting, craft and lots more!
If you're looking for a creative way to step back and make something with your hands, Make Town is for you.
I feel so lucky to have visited Make Town. It was the highlight of my trip to London for sure.
Do I need any previous experience?
Nope! This workshop is for absolute beginners! This is a great place to start and what a wonderful pattern for your first to learn.
Can I bring my own yarn?
Yeah man for sure! This is a great stashbuster project, so bring along what you have got! You will also be able to purchase items from the shop with a 10% discount. Sweet x
I wont be able to make all the session.
not to worry! Learning IRL is best but life is busy, so we will run a whatsapp support group so you can tap into advice at anytime
Can I bring my kid?
Sure why not? Babies are of course welcome and if you have a kid older than 11 that wants to join then book the two of ya in and learn together!
What if I don't finish?
Don’t stress! Sometimes life gets in the way, so just do your best and we will be available to help out with questions on the whatsapp x
