One To One Knitting or Crochet Lesson *** New Dates ***
£25.00 - £40.00
One to one knitting or crochet lesson. If you want to learn to knit or crochet, or you have something you would like to be shown or helped with, then book a one hour one to one lesson in store!
If you would like to learn from scratch then all necessary materials can be bought from the shop before the lesson, or if you have a project started then bring it along.
As it will entail close work with another person, masks will need to be worn.
We are running a one off session over the Easter Bank holiday for a parent and a child over 10 years to cover beginners' knitting. There are 4 spaces for the 2-4pm lesson which I have set up on the website as 2 sets, so purchasing one lesson will book one adult and one child over 10 years old for the session. The cost of the lesson includes materials.
Stylecraft Special DK
The, much loved, Stylecraft Special DK. A soft, reliable acrylic yarn in a massive range of colours.
100g ball, approximately 295 metres.
Tension 22 stitches by 30 rows on 4mm needles.
Recommended hook - 4mm
I think most of our customers have tried the Stylecraft Special range, and we all keep coming back to it because it's just so good at what it does - good quality, affordable and durable yarn at a great price point which is soft enough for blankets but washes without any problems. The fact it comes in 100 different colourways means you'll always find the colour, or colour combination, that you like with this yarn. You really can't beat it!
Stylecraft Life DK
£3.95 - £4.25
A versatile double knitting yarn that has 25% wool but is still very easy to care for as it's machine washable at 40 degrees and cool tumble dry.
100g balls with 298m/326yds per ball
4mm needles or hook
Tension is 22sts and 30 rows for a 10x10cm square knit on 4mm needles
This yarn is my absolute favourite good value double knit yarn. Its got the wool content for warmth, the acrylic content for washing and durability (my mum wore her cardigan I made her almost non stop for over a year and it looked as good the last time I saw her in it as the day I gifted it). It knits up to standard DK tension which means you can use it for pretty much for any DK pattern. The colours are lovely and vibrant as well, and the nepp shades add a bit more interest to the flat colours
Stylecraft ReCreate Chunky *** New Yarn ***
Ready for Autumn, Stylecraft has brought out a chunky version of their very popular ReCreate DK but in a chunky!
ReCreate Chunky is a blended yarn made entirely from recycled fibres: 40% Recycled wool, 30% recycled acrylic and 30% recycled polyester.
100g Ball with 140m / 135 yds per ball
Recommended needle size 6mm, with tension being 14 sts and 20 rows for a 10x10cm square.
Comes in 8 shades
KnitPro Waves Crochet Hook
£2.80 - £3.90
Sleek and smooth aluminium crochet hooks with comfortable colour coded handles. Stitches glide easily whilst the handle means your grip feels much easier and less likely to slip. Each size has its own colour, making it easy to tell at a glance which hook you need.
KnitPro Zing Single Pointed Needles, 30cm
£3.75 - £6.80
Zing needles are beautiful needles that make your knitting even more enjoyable! They are colour coded according to size, and the aluminium body is perfectly smooth and lightweight, allowing stitches to glide with ease. The sizes are laser printed to ensure they will remain visible through many projects.
