Garments in stranded colour work (aka ‘Fair Isle’) are among the most beautiful and impressive work that a knitter can produce. Yet the techniques involved are much easier to master than is generally believed. You will learn options for yarn management, maintaining good tension and the principles behind colour choice. The weekend will also introduce attendees to Steeking, a technique associated with Fair Isle, that uses a bridge of waste stitches to enable you to work entirely in the round in situations where ordinarily you couldn’t, such as when working armholes or making a cardigan. This class will assist you to master the process giving you the confidence to steek anything!
You will learn all you need to know and more about this often revered technique.
