Top 3 Knitting and Crochet Class FAQs

Q. Are knitting and crochet similar, how do I know what one to learn?
A. They are similar in that they both use yarn and at least one stick but other than that they are quite different. Knitting involves a bit more counting and keeping track which is great if you are a details person whereas crochet you CAN in theory get away with a bit more of a freestyle approach which is great if you’re not so much of a details person! They’re both fab though, and once you’ve tried one, you’ll probably want to try the other one anyway!

Q. I bought a crochet kit, can I bring it along to class and get some help?
A. Our beginner’s crochet classes follow a simple pattern so we can keep everyone on the same page and to encourage the social side of the class and peer learning. By all means bring it along and if the class is quiet you can ask our tutor but we can’t guarantee you’ll get help with it. You can however book a private session with our Knitting Tutor if you wanted to! Just drop us an email

Q. Can I bring along my own yarn to class if I want a particular colour?
A. Of course you can! We can let you know what kind of yarn you need for the class and suggest where you shop too.
