We’re not sure when and we can’t be sure who started it, but somewhere along the line, knitting has become the quirky girl’s pastime du jour. As well as the occasional hip indie girl you see knitting on the train, there’s a pack of crafty stars getting in on the needle action too, including Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Madonna. If you’re feeling out of the loop, then we’re happy to show you how.
After over two hours of knitting and knattering, you’ll feel like a pro; you’ll have learned all the basics including knit and purl stitch, how to cast on and cast off, stocking stitch and garter stitch. Keep your new-found skills topped up at home using your take away kit of bamboo knitting needles (lightweight, so great for beginners!), yarn and a ‘how to’ guide.
