Close Knit February

Close Knit at The Gallery of Costume, Platt Hall, Rusholme.
Saturday 27th Feb 2-4PM

Calling all you Close Knit Wonder Women! Let’s get the sisterhood together and prepare to celebrate International Women’s Day (8th March) in style. This month’s pattern will be inspired by the Italian tradition of the giving of beautiful golden mimosa flowers on the day: we will be creating mimosa mitts! On a similar theme, we will be exploring the use of symbolism in costume, looking at examples from the collection and beyond.

A friendly free knitting group with needles, patterns and yarn provided, but bring your own if you prefer. The pattern will require 3.5 and 3.75mm dpns or circular needles, long enough to create a ‘magic loop’. The yarn will be yellow DK.

Hope you can make it!
