Knit a chunky Santa hat with wine and pies

What you'll do

Are you on the good or naughty list this year? One way to guarantee you're in Santa's good books is by making him his very own chunky knit hat!

Join Jacki from the Woolly Badger to knit a festive Santa hat to a soundtrack of pure festive feels. Think Mariah, Shakin’ Stevens, Slade - Spotify and your host will be going in...

With the option to knit your hat flat and seam it, or knit it in the round, this workshop is suitable for everyone from confident beginners up to seasoned knitters who just fancy a bit of fun. You'll all make pompoms to go on at the end (which is far easier than it looks!).

Your group will begin by looking through the hat pattern together so everyone's clear about what they're doing. Next, you'll cast and get knitting. Jacki will be on hand to help out with things like changing colours, decreasing stitches and making the pompoms. By the end you'll have a lovely Santa hat - and a stomach full of festive treats.

Yarn, needles, and patterns are all included. Since it’s Christmas, there will obviously be mince pies and mulled wine a-plenty (including gluten-free mince pies, because nobody should miss out on that mincemeat-y joy). Your host will also be bringing along lots of tea and biscuits - because tea, knitting, and a nice sit down are some of the best things in life.

This workshop is happening at Bedminster's lovely Creative Space. It’s a dedicated space just for creative workshops like this one. There are eight spaces available for this experience, so you can be sure you’ll get all the help you need. Let's get on that good list!
