Beginner friendly, cause everything is a piece of piss when you have some excellent guidance.

Over the course of 4 weeks we are gonna tackle this epic jumper! If you can knit this, you can knit bloody anything! Take the challenge its gonna be a blast!

 

These sessions are taught be the wonderful Theodora herself – The pattern writer and creator so you know you will be in good hands.

And I will be there on hand with snacks and beers and words of encouragement and I am gonna make another! Its so fun!

Nothing like a group of knitters getting shit done. Challenge yourself you are in good hands x

Whats the plan

Over 5 weeks, meeting on the 1st Thursday each month we will tackle the various tasks and will result in an epic jersey that will be as unique as you!

You will learn:

  • To knit a sample gauge swatch
  • To adjust that swatch to correct your tension
  • To experiment with colour and texture and yarn weight and fibre
  • Instarsia – the method of using multiple strands in a row
  • To wet block a garment correctly
  • To stitch the garment together

Now, I know this may seam like quite a big bridge to cross but we will be able to show you how to knit this for your level. Maybe you would prefer a plain back? Or striped sleeves instead, let us show you how to reimagine this just for you.

What do I bring?

You will need

  • 5mm & 6mm straight or circular needles  – your call on what works for
  • You may need to bring change these to get the correct tension
  • A variety of chunky yarns -We recommend these ones for your main colours or any Double Knit (DK) held double also works really well
  • Try really hard to use what yarn you have! We hope you will bring in your oddsodds to swap and share – this will be so fun!
  • Also a project bag – Quite a big one!
