Young People Knit
If you love making and personalising your own gear to go with your unique style, then Young People Knit (YKP) has been created just for you!
Join one of our weekly meet ups where you can design, create and make your own products with the help of a skilled crafts teacher. Bring your own project, get great new ideas and discover a whole new world of handmade crafts and skills.
And it’s not just knitting we offer we can also show you how to crochet, needle felt and needle point, (sometimes called “Tapestry“), as well as knitting.
Meet other enthusiastic designers and crafts people to share ideas, learn from each other and produce fantastic handmade products.
Why buy something that’s mass produced when you can create your own, quality, individual and bespoke piece? Classes are on average one hour long and prices start from £5 per class. Different teachers offer different times, days and venues.

"Knit Nights are great for everyone. Not only did I learn a new skill but it also gives me the chance to socialise. I also found them a great way to de-stress after a busy day with the kids/work. They are fantastic nights and I can't wait till the next one".
Louise, Knit Night & Day, Portobello
"Eilidh’s Knit Nights are a great place to bring your knitting questions, learn new techniques or just hang out with fellow knitters. It doesn't matter what level you're at, Eilidh makes sure everyone gets the attention they need. There's always plenty of chat and laughter around the table even when you've all walked in as strangers, it's a very welcoming environment".
Liz, Knit Night & Day, Portobello
"I tried to learn to knit before - someone showed me how to - but it was only when I came to Kids Knit that I understood - as the teacher knew how to help me”
Sophie, Kids Knit, Lenzie
"In an era of increased technology use by children, I am pleased that my daughter is developing a hobby in knitting. Kids Knit classes have helped Cara gain a skill and a focus that she can continue to develop, while having fun with other children.”
