Free knitting pattern

Stylecraft have released a free knitting pattern to help dispel those winter blues! Make this lovely chunky knit scarf for friends and family.  Are you ready for a new project? Certainly this will keep you busy  and warm at the same time!  A short project like this gives a sense of satisfaction and achievement without taking months to make.

Stylecraft have issued this lovely scarf pattern FREE!!  It uses a chunky yarn, so the Bellissima chunky or Softie or Special chunky I have in stock should all work well for this.

Don’t forget you can easily change the colours to suit the men in your life.   The pattern can be found here: https://www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk/pdf/Free%20online%20Life%20Chunky%20Valentine%20Scarf_p1.pdf

Knitting project

Welcome to lockdown crafts 2.0

Want to do something? Had a go at knitting before? Haven’t knitted for years?  Here are some patterns and yarns that might inspire you to re skill and make yourself some lovely accessories or give as gifts for a handmade Christmas!

This is Carnival Tweed chunky yarn from Stylecraft. I had a delivery the day of lockdown plus half a dozen pink ones already in the shop. It has a wool content of 20% and is lovely and soft to knit with on 6mm needles. As you can see from the photos, it knits up in a lovely varigated stripe. There is a beret pattern on the inside of the ball band plus see the patterns below that I have in stock. If you’d like anything, give me a call or message and I can arrange to meet you at the shop for collection.

Many people have been learning new skills whilst in lockdown.  Come to our beginners knitting class and have some in person tuition to help make sense of the videos you may have been watching online.

All materials included, space for a maximum of 4 persons. Covid – 19 procedures in place with distanced seating and hand gel in place. Wearing of a face covering may be prudent.
