Design your own knitwear workshop with Debbie Abrahams

We still have a few spaces available for Debbie's two workshops - Design your own Knits Part 1 on Wednesday 21st April and Design your own Knits part 2 on Friday 14th May. Book them individually or come along for both days.
Part 1 shows you how to create a knitted swatch from your original source of inspiration, which could be a drawing, photo, painting, card etc. Create motifs, patterns and textured stitches on graph paper ready to be knitted, learn how to choose a colour palette, understand how to work out scale, how to create pattern repeats and make them fit. Choose a suitable yarn for the project, measure tension accurately and convert measurement into stitches and rows.
Part 2 guides you through the process of making your own spec drawing and how to put the design onto graph paper so that it is ready to knit. Debbie will teach you how to work out the yarn quantity needed for a design and how to write up your own knitting pattern.
Both workshops will be held at our Sussex studio and the price of £49 includes unlimited tea and coffee, a tasty lunch and 10% discount on purchases made on the day. Book here, or call 01273 400030 to book.
