Knitted Retro Animals

Knitting workshops for the 21st century crafter who enjoys a glance back at the whimsical patterns of the past. Charmingly kitsch, these retro animals are worked from vintage 1940’s and 50’s patterns and can be customised or accessorised to create your own unique knitted creature; a fabulous gift you won’t want to part with.

This two day course will cover how to read and follow the patterns, how to make up and finish the animals and also ideas about dressing and/or accessorising them.

Knowledge of basic knitting techniques is essential for this short course, although all the techniques required will be covered in the course
