Often with hand knitted garments it can be the finishing off that can let you down. On this workshop Carol will show you how to get that professional look to your knitted garments. She will work through sewing up a small basic garment. You will learn about blocking & pressing, sewing pieces together using mattress stitch, picking up stitches on a neck band.
Learn the basic techniques of Fair Isle by making a fun folk inspired patch bag. Get confident working at 2 colours at the same time across a row and see the benefits of reading from a graph. The handle and side seem detail are made from a mock crochet chain technique. You will add some beads at the bottom for that extra finishing touch.
