Beginner's Guide to Knitting Workshop

Join us in store and create quirky cacti decorations as you learn the basics of knitting!



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 5     label £25

Learn how to master simple knitting techniques with confidence! Our beginner’s tutorial will show you how to get started, taking you through the process of stitching a fun cactus pattern. This is a great way to get to grips with the basics of knitting, with one of our craft experts on hand to guide you through every step.

This workshop provides a wonderful introduction to a timeless craft, perfect if you’re a complete beginner. As you work through the project, you’ll learn how to cast on, how to work a knit stitch, how to work a purl stitch and how to cast off. It’s a fantastic way to pick up techniques you can then put into practice when you move on to other patterns.

You’ll have a craft kit included, ensuring you’ve got the yarn, knitting needles and other accessories you need. Your store colleague will break down how to stitch your way to incredible results, helping grow your confidence as you start your knitting journey.

Hayley Hannaford Jan 2022


Teacher was lovely n very helpful, didn't get a catus finished yet but showed us how to finish it!

Kate Martin Jan 2022


Mel was a great teacher but the kit could do with smaller knitting needles for a beginner. But a great course. Thank you

Julie Vollor Jan 2022


The instructor was brilliant - really patient and adaptable. I learnt to knit a very long time ago, but had not knitted anything for 30+ years and had forgotten what to do. She changed the way she taught me the stitches to fit with my previous experience. Can’t thank her enough for reminding me why I used to enjoy knitting, and that it’s easy. Venue was fine. Pack contents were good.

Amanda Andrews Jan 2022

Chelsea is an amazing teacher! She taught me so much. I really enjoyed our session and can’t believe I made this (pic) I am hoping Hobbycraft start a ‘next steps’ knitting workshop soon.

Kirsty Britten Jan 2022


It was really great to meet Becca, she was extremely helpful with any questions/showing me what I wanted to learn and gave me the advise to be able to take it away and finish. Also giving me extra resources like mentioning about YouTube videos, books from hobbycraft that are useful and many other suggestions. It did help I was the only person as I found it really gave me the confidence when a few mistakes happened to be able to get it fixed and have Becca explain where I had gone wrong or how it could be fixed etc.
