Fairisle Knitting

Liz Lovick

3 Hours

After a quick look at what makes stranded knitting Fair Isle, we will start straight in knitting a sample.  Along the way we will talk about the different ways of holding yarns, how to deal with the common problems of tension, and how to steek.

By the end of the workshop you will be well on your way to completing your sample, and you will be armed with the information and confidence to try other projects.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who can knit, purl, cast on, cast off etc.  You do not have to have done any colourwork before. It is also suitable for those who have done some colourwork and want to take their knitting skills further.
