Spaces available


All workshop registrations are non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled by the Festival.

Your weekend pass for the festival is included when taking a workshop. Only one pass per person. You can get your bracelet at the entrance.


During this workshop, you will learn to start a knitting project (casting on stitches), how to do the Knit Stitch and the Purl Stitch, and finally how to finish a knitting project (casting off stitches). With these basic techniques, you will be able to knit your first scarf, in either Garter Stitch or Andalusian Stitch.

What to bring

You will have to bring with you a set of two knitting needles, size 5 mm (I suggest you buy the metal ones), as well as 5 balls of yarn (on the label, the needle size is indicated. Also, if you choose to knit your scarf with only one colour, make sure your balls of yarn have the same dye lot). I have attached a picture of a yarn label, you will see where is the information about the needle size as well as the dye lot. Do not hesitate to contact me at info@legarsquitricote.com if you need more information.

Guy Charbonneau le gars qui tricote

Guy Charbonneau has been knitting for more than 45 years. Watching his mother knitting, he was fascinated by the fact that one could make something with only two knitting needles and a piece of yarn. Since then, his passion for knitting has grown steadily. For the past few years, he has been knitting mostly socks and he makes instructional videos that explain how to do it. In 2007, he created his website (www.legarsquitricote.com), hoping that other men would join the rank of knitters. For him, knitting is a great way to reduce stress, whether you're a guy or a girl! In addition to knitting, Guy spins his own yarn and also enjoys weaving. He regularly gives knitting classes. He enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge.
