Take up Materknitty!

Head down to Mrs Moon’s Yarn & Haberdashery shop and learn how to knit or crochet something gorgeous for your little one.

rs Moon, the beautiful South West London yarn and haberdashery shop has just launched their aptly named Materknitty courses, where expectant mums can learn how to knit or crochet to create a beautiful, soft and cosy blanket for their newborns.

Mrs Moon can demystify the process of learning these traditional crafts and help you acquire a life-long skill, which is therapeutic and relaxing to do, whilst creating a lovingly hand-made heirloom.

The fun packed days are organised into small and intimate groups of four, allowing for one-to-one assistance and teaching. Courses are available to book at an all-inclusive price of £125 and can be booked online.

During the morning, beginners will learn the basics of how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off. The day long course is broken up with coffee breaks and lunch. Next is an included coffee break at next door’s popular coffee emporium, Grounded.

Head back to the store to learn the basics of the foundation chain and double and treble crochet stitches. Lunch is at 12.30 over the road at the renowned Brula Pantry for a delicious two course meal which is booked and included in the price.

The afternoon consists of your first exciting project, learning how to create a hand knitted blanket from Mrs Moon’s own designed baby patterns in sumptuous yearns in beautiful baby palettes.

To make the day even easier, Mrs Moon provides everything including needles, crochet hook and plenty of yarn to use in the classes. You will also receive a lesson guide detailing all you have learnt. You will leave after your final lesson with your own special project underway as well as everything you need to complete it. So if you’ve always wanted to learn, now is the time.
