A warm welcome to Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017!

13TH -15TH OCTOBER 2017



You’re welcomed to the beautiful Highlands for Scotland for Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017 (Inverness Ice Centre, 13th-15th October 2017). Inspired by the hugely successful The Danish Fano Strikkefestival, Loch Ness Knit Fest pulls on the rich cultural crafting traditions of Scotland.

Join the thousands of visitors that are expected to flock to Inverness from all over the world for this wonderfully woolly event. Our truly unique programme is bursting with creativity that’s sure to inspire your knitting projects and provide lots of opportunity to meet new people. The best bit, your festival entry is free when you purchase a ticket to any of the Loch Ness Knit Fest workshops.

Tune in to presentations and demonstrations on the main stage in our Crafting Village and browse the Loch Ness Knit Fest Marketplace with 40+ stalls selling irresistible quality yarn and other crafting goodies!

To make your trip all the more memorable, you can experience highland hospitality first hand with a knitters special cruise of Loch Ness and ceilidh dance with renowned Scottish band Blazin’ Fiddles.

Are you a Raveler? We are on Ravelry as LNKnitFest and would love for you to befriend us! We also host a group where Loch Ness Knit Fest goers can chat ahead of the event.

2017 AWAITS!
