Woman's Weekly Workshops That Work LogoYou’ll learn how to hold and work on a set of four double-pointed needles, creating narrow knitted tubes, such as socks or a polo neck. In the afternoon, you’ll work on a circular needle for both straight and tubular knitting. This workshop is the next step to build up your skills.
