Here at The Yarn Cake, we understand how daunting getting into knitting and crocheting can be and we have always strived to make this skills more accessible to a wider audience. Whilst there is nothing wrong with YouTube and many (many) dropped stitches, we offer a selection of classes in both knitting and crochet.

Looking to get started? Crafting for a while and trying to upgrade your skillset? Try our 4 week beginner courses of knitting or crochet and learn a variety of techniques that are essential to have in your repertoire. 

We also have a variety of one-off classes so check out what we currently have on offer on our classes page!

Kristen Salzer-Frost

Kristen has been knitting for almost as long as she can remember, and crocheting for about ten years. She is an engineering lecturer and the person behind Insertinnergeek (which is an anagram of “engineer Kristen”). She tries to bring a little bit of engineering geekery to everything she does, especially her knitting and crochet!⁣ We are delighted to have her as our resident teacher at The Yarn Cake.
