You've made a mistake? Don't worry, there's nothing to fear. Anything in your knitting can be fixed, and we once you learn to spot and fix any mistakes you make, you're well on the way to becoming a master knitter!

This practical and enjoyable class with experienced teacher Tash will give you the skills and confidence to work out where your stitches have gone wrong and how to get them back to the way they're supposed to be.

You will learn:

How to identify and fix common mistakes such as:

  • dropped stitches
  • knit when you should have purled, and vice versa
  • too many stitches (accidental increase)
  • missed a decrease or an increase in the row below
  • a hole in your knitting, and more!

What to bring:

  • some light-coloured, smooth DK or worsted Weight (8 or 10ply) yarn
  • needles to suit your yarn (4mm for DK and 5-5.5mm for worsted). Your needles can be circular or straight but if circular preferably at least 60cm long from tip to tip.
  • a crochet hook in a size similar to your needles 
  • a few locking stitch markers 
  • a double pointed needle in a size similar to your knitting needles 
  • a tapestry needle

Tash will have spare notions to borrow in class if you don't have them yourself.

Before coming to class:

Using your yarn cast on 30 stitches (any kind of cast on) and knit 10 rows garter stitch and then 10 rows stockinette stitch.
Leave your work on the needles and bring it with you.

You're also entitled to a 10% discount on yarn, accessory and book purchases in store on the day.

Your teacher: Tash Childers
Tash has been knitting ever since her grandmother taught her at 8 years of age. She was always a fearless knitter, tackling an all-over intarsia vest for her mum as her first garment when she was 12. While taking time off from Mathematics teaching to raise her children, she taught many of her friends to knit and co-ordinated a mothers’ group for knitters. She is passionate about sharing the joy of knitting with others and helping knitters to improve their skills, so they have the confidence to tackle any project.
