3. Knitting stripes.

4. Trying different yarn qualities.

5. Making a gauge swatch.

6. Calculating the amount of stitches and rows for a cowl scarf or headband.

7. Knitting the product.

Knits produced using a knitting machine have an even texture, and you’ll get a glimpse into the production of modern knit items. Prior knitting experience is a bonus but not essential.

* Fee: €115 (including lunch).
