Come and knit your first jumper! If you want to move on from scarves and hats to your first garment, this course is for you. With a group of other intrepid knitters, your tutor will guide you through your project, breaking the pattern down into manageable sections and knitting it along with you. At the end of twelve weeks, you'll not only have a beautiful handmade garment fitted specially to you, but the knowledge and skills to knit hundreds of other patterns and fill your wardrobe with handknits!

You should be confident in some basic skills - knitting, purling, casting on and off. Experience knitting in the round is useful (but not totally necessary.) If you have any questions about the course requriements, please ask and we'll get you sorted!
This jumper pattern runs from a 29½" to a 66" chest circumference.

Participants will get 10% off wool and supplies - if you are not buying your yarn from us, you will need to get approval from the tutor on what yarn you use to make sure it's suitable for the project. Once you sign up, you'll receive an email with a list of materials.
