This workshop will teach you to spruce up your knitting with a bit of crocheting and embroidering.
We will be crocheting decorative edges along the bound-off edge of the sample, and practice some embroidery stitches like the ‘French knot’ to create little roses, for instance. We will also be knitting a border onto the sample, and crocheting a decorative trim on it, in order to give you some ideas for the edge on a cardigan, for instance.
Explanation of the difficulty level: The workshop is suitable for intermediate (practised, level 3) to advanced (level 4) knitters and crocheters.

Short description ‘knitting a sample’
Cast on about 30 stitches with a size 3/3.5 needle and wool that’s appropriate for that needle size. Make about 35 rows of stocking stitches back and forth. Then knit about 6 rows (= 3 garter stitches). Loosely bind off all stitches. Wash and block the sample or gently steam it so that it can lie flat, making it easier to work with during the workshop.
