Wool on the Exe
Introduction to Fair Isle knitting
We're very excited to have Terri Bate back with us to lead this amazing introduction to Fair Isle workshop!
Terri will weave history, colour, patterns and technique so that you'll have a solid foundation from which to expand your fair isle knitting.
For this workshop, we're offering a choice of project. You can come for one session and make a headband, or come back the following week and make a beanie (not pictured). Both projects are knit in the round on a circular needle and, if you make a beanie, you'll also learn how to work in the round on double pointed needles. You will have a choice of 2 patterns (see below) for the headband/beanie and a large selection of colours to choose from.
To be successful in this workshop, you should confidently know how to cast on, knit and purl.
We will be using Woolyknit Aran - 100% British wool.
