Wednesday June 28th 6pm - 8pm & July 12th 6pm - 8pm

This is the class you've all been waiting for! Book on to this fantastic two session workshop and let Ruth Matthews and Rachael Sterrett guide you through making this years hat from Shetland Wool Week - the Buggiflooer Beanie. (SWW have kindly given us permission to use this design for teaching purposes.) Both Ruth & Rachael are experienced knitters and love fairisle and colour work - you'll pick up all the techniques you need to make your beanie with plenty of guidance and support. There will be a fortnight in between classes to give plenty of knitting time! And as always, you can pop to the shop with any problems in between. 

Level: this class is aimed at intermediate knitters, you should be proficient with knitting, purling, increases and decreases;  ideally you've knitted in the round but it's not essential.

Materials: the hat takes up to 6 x 25g balls of Jamiesons of Shetland Spindrift. But you can also just use 2 colours as shown in the photo which takes 1-2 balls of the main and 1 for the contrast. The yarn isn't provided in the cost of the class; you can bring from stash but we recommend that it is the Jamiesons of Shetland Spindrift. Attendees will enjoy 10% discount for class purchases! (We can help advise you which colours to use before you start the class.)
