Tuesday 3rd December                                                    7pm – 9pm                       £25

In this workshop you will learn how to knit using the magic loop on a circular needle. Master this and it opens the door to knitting 2 socks at a time, avoiding suffering from ‘second sock syndrome’. Sleeves or mitts can also be worked 2 at a time, the added bonus for sleeves is there is no sewing up to be done.

Molly will show you how to set up a magic loop and cover the pitfalls to look out for as the work grows. Having mastered 1 loop, you will be shown how to set up 2 loops on 1 circular needle and begin work on a pair of fingerless mitts. You will be provided with a detailed worksheet as a reminder of the skills taught.

Skills needed – ability to cast on/off and to knit.
