Close Knit, Saturday 27th June, 2- 4pm
The Gallery of Costume, Platt Hall, Rusholme, Manchester
Join us for June’s Close Knit as we get inspired by pieces the gallery’s collection that make a design feature of the belt. We will be creating own own cabled belts using a simple repeat pattern that will allow for plenty of chatting! Don’t be worried if you haven’t cabled before-this is a great pattern to learn the basics.
We will be working in aran (worsted) weight wool and 4.5mm needles if you want to bring your own- this is a great way to use up those odd balls that you bought because they were beautiful! It would be particularly useful if you could bring your own cable needles if you have them (don’t worry if not). The belt can be knotted but if you prefer a buckle it will need to be for a belt width of 1.75″ (4.5cm). Hope you can join us!
Free and friendly adult sessions for beginners and experts. Needles and yarn are supplied.
