EXTREME KNITTING - ALL DAY!
We’re taking it up another notch for all you keen knitters out there in an all day class with Jacqui Fink.
Jacqui's journey to extreme knitting is endlessly inspiring. Jacqui is entirely self-taught and her work is underpinned by her three passions: her love of sensory feedback, texture and natural fibres.
Determined to offer knitters a chance to share in her woolly world, Jacqui has developed her own extreme knitting yarn that was launched in 2015. Named K1S1 (Knit One Share One), the yarn is an innovative premium felted yarn made from high quality merino wool. Made to Jacqui's design and specifications, the yarn gives knitters, weavers and crafters alike a viable, functional and soft alternative with which to create their own large scale textiles.
We have created so many extreme knitters now we felt it high time we take Jacqui Fink’s Extreme Knitting baby one step further!
This all-day class is structured so that you have the time and space to really get those knitting sticks clicking. You will get to spend ALL day under Jacqui’s Fink's incredible teachings and legendary skills.
This class is suited to experienced knitters only.
In the morning we will go through the fundamentals of extreme knitting, the benefits on merino wool and why it is important to nurture your creativity.
You are very much the master in this class as you get to choose the stitch in which to make your throw from either garter, British moss, double rib and stocking stitch. Jacqui will provide you with a pattern to follow to ensure your masterpiece is a guaranteed success.
Excitingly, you also get to choose the colour of your throw, depending on availability at the time of choosing.*
Note: We’ve seen Jacqui’s blankets and they are truly the cosiest, most luxurious things on earth.
* On signing up for the class, Jacqui will email you with the colour options. Jacqui's K1S1 stock levels change daily and so you need to be quick to nab your favourite colour.

We will burn through a glorious 5kg bump of the softest merino wool sourced directly from the mill in New Zealand, so that your throw can be knitted without joins.
With this class you will also get to take home your very own pair of Extreme Knitting needles! So you can keep on creating woollen magic at home.
Note: Consider your transport options - this blanket is big! It would be difficult to balance your needles and throw on a bicycle, for example.
