Whether you are obsessed with beanies, or simply want to learn how to knit: our new Knitting CraftJam is a must! Learn basic stitches and make all the beanies you ever dreamed of. This knitting workshop is designed for absolute beginners, but also fun for not-so-newbies who want to have some fun and stitch with others.
