Beginning stranded colorwork in the Fair Isle style

Learn to knit beautiful stranded color work in the Fair Isle style. The class is organized into four, two hour sessions (two per day). We will start out with the history and conventions of Fair Isle Knitting, then move on to the technical skills you’ll need. We will cover- color selection, two color cast on, corrugated ribbing, knitting with both hands as a way to keep your colors organized, color dominance, reading a chart, and your color work gauge. Photos from Shetland Wool Week 2014 and a tour of the Jamieson’s Mill where Spindrift Yarn is made will also be shared.

Our in class project will be a headband- the perfect size to get comfortable with the rhythm of your stitches and to give you a stitch gauge for future projects. The pattern and sample charts will be provided. You may want to wait to select your Shetland Spindrift colors until after the first session when color is discussed.

*Students will receive a 10% discount on class materials.
