Traditional Fair Isle Knitting Workshop (22.09.22)

£35.00

THURSDAY 22nd SEPTEMBER 2022 – 1:30pm – 4:30pm

Traditional Fair Isle Knitting looks stunning and is a joy to knit. This workshop, led by Julie Cowan, will teach you how to work 2 colours of yarn at the same time by holding one yarn in each hand. We will be working using the ‘magic loop’ method of working in the round which will be taught as we practice how to achieve the perfect ‘float’ and read charts. Whether you aspire to knit traditional Nordic style garments/accessories or would just like to add another skill set to your knitting repertoire this would be the ideal way to spend your Thursday afternoon.
Included for this workshop is a Truro Wool Fairisle Neck Warmer pattern – a perfect first project.

This workshop is available to attend either in person at Truro Wool, or online via Zoom.
