Knitting with Colour

Knitting with Colour

This workshop will show you the two different techniques of knitting with colour, which are ‘fairisle’ and ‘intarsia’. Simple fairisle patterns will enable you to learn how to achieve an even tension and how to carry the yarns across the back neatly, as well as give you practice in how to hold two yarns simultaneously. You will then learn how to manage your colours and avoid holes whilst working on a motif intarsia panel.
We will also explore slipstitch colour work, the technique of creating multicoloured fabrics by using one colour at a time.
This workshop is suitable for knitters who can already knit and follow a basic knitting pattern.
