2kgs of yarn is included in the price of the workshop, which should give you a blanket 75 x 125cm (or you can make a thinner double bed runner) and you'll be finished in the time it takes to do the workshop.

I did the arm knitting class and it was so easy and fun. The teacher was lovely and patient. We managed to make the blankets in quick time because of the intimate nature of the class. The venue was lovely, bright and clean. Would definitely go again 😊

The Chap and Darling Knit shop is primarily a market stall that pops up around SE London. They bring you kits and materials to get knitting, crocheting, weaving and embroidering! To get you started - and learning - Chap and Darling also host workshops and craft evenings. Relaxed, collaborative and for people of all crafty advancements, the idea is to have fun and to learn a little something to take away (along with whatever you've made).

What a fabulous thing to do! I really enjoyed myself and Emily was a fantastic teacher. I was super proud I'd managed to make a blanket too... and one that didn't look half bad! Highly recommend for a small group of friends.

Amazing. This was a brilliant workshop. It was relaxed and the arm knitting wasn’t difficult at all. I’d definitely recommend it. There were lots of options on the day to make a bed runner or blanket or make a bigger blanket. I really enjoyed it.

Great session run by the wonderful Chap and Darling team. Tuition was clear and easy to follow and there was a great choice of yarn. Really happy with the end result!

A lovely evening! Emily is a great teacher, everything was well paced and she was very patient. The blanket is easy to stitch once you've got the basics down and great to take home something that looks pretty tricky but only took an hour and a half to make! Good value for money too considering there are the same sort of classes out there for double the cost.

Fantastic evening - lovely teacher and location. Instructions were very clear and friendly, and we got to take home a gorgeous hand-made blanket by the end! Would highly recommend.

Fabulous workshop. Emily is very warm and welcoming. She’s knowledgeable and helpful, making the class a fun learning environment. You can choose your colours in advance on her website, or choose there on the day. By the end of the class, you have a lovely chunky knit blanket to take home as well as the skills to make another in the future. Would attend another class.

It was both challenging but easy to succeed at! The first half an hour takes some thinking but then after that you’re golden. Such a great teacher, really helpful and hands on. Lovely choice of wool colour, a fun, social and relaxed atmosphere too. Everyone left with a blanket or bed runner that they had knitted themselves, ideal.
