Two days/ Beginners double bed Knitting machine workshop
This course is great for those who have either attended the workshop ‘Knitting Machine- The Basics’ or those who already have a good knowledge of using a knitting machine and are keen to learn more. With a maximum of only two people on the course more 1:1 time can be spent with each individual.
During the two days we will cover a range of techniques using the ribber attachment, where by the end of the weekend you will leave confident to continue exploring these in your own time. Each technique will be demonstrated fully and then knitted by yourself so that you you leave with a range of samples documenting each. We will start at the very beginning looking at ribs, circular knitting, pleats, racking, pointelle, cable and a range of tuck fabrics.
We will also look at in depth what the machine is doing as you knit with detailed knit diagrams. This will ensure that by the end of the weekend you understand what the machine is doing with each technique and fundamentally you are in control of the machine.
All materials are provided during this course. I recommend bringing a camera and notebook to write your own personal notes.
