- How to hold your needles and yarn
- Casting on
- Knit stitch
- Purl stitch
- Changing colour yarn

In the second half, you will get to understand how to read a pattern, and will begin knitting a pair of wrist warmers to complete at home with your new found skills! Bianca will also provide printouts with the wrist warmer pattern and other information for you to take home.
