Fairisle and Intarsia

Fairisle and Intarsia

In this workshop learn how to knit with colour using the fairisle and intarsia techniques. Melanie will show you how to strand and weave the yarns, hold yarn in two hands (including a continental purl and a Norwegian purl), join in new colours, avoid holes and read charts. You will knit two panels – one fairisle and one intarsia which will be joined to make a purse.

This workshop is suitable for people wishing to expand their skills.

Participants need 3.75mm needles, an extra 3.75mm needle and a sewing up needle.
