Knit your own Felted Slippers

Saturday, 14th November - 11:00 - 12:30

About

In this workshop you will learn the very basics of knitting whilst starting to make a funky pair of Norwegian style felt slippers. Irene will start with casting on and knitting in the garter stitch. You will learn how to follow this very simple pattern for the slippers and how to assemble them once you finished your knitting. You will be given full instructions for the felting once the slippers are finished. Felting is a lot of fun and perfect for beginner knitters as any small mistakes will be hidden after the felting is completed.
