NEW Intro to Fair Isle
Skill Level: intermediate (after mitts or sweaters), Instructor: Liane, 2 session class (4 hours total).
In this class, you will make a beautiful two colour fair isle hat while learning the basics of this popular colourwork technique. You'll learn how to read a charted pattern, hold your yarn, change colours, carry the yarn, moderate your tension, and a few more ticks along the way! Don't worry if that sounds daunting, our gentle instructor has got you covered!
Materials are not included in the price of our classes, but we sell everything you need and you receive 10% off all materials during your group class (if you register online you will receive a discount code by email with your class information).
- 2 balls of DK or Sport weight yarn in contrasting colours. We suggest Cascade 220 Superwash Sport (for a size large (23" head) get 2 skeins for the main/background colour and 1 skein for the contrasting colour)
- 3mm/US2.5-16" circular needles (the Knitter's Pride interchangeable needles in the 3.5" length are very handy for projects like this, as you won't need to keep buying more needles every time you need a different size, which is especially helpful for sizes you don't frequently use. Get a 16" cable for this class.)
- 3.5mm/US4-16" circular needles
- 3.5mm/US4 (7" to 8" long) double pointed needles (both the Knitter's Pride 8" and Clover 7" are great)
- Fur Pompom (completely optional, but we have them!)
We know a couple of weeks seems like a bit of a time commitment, but it's really important to us that you to have the opportunity to learn the skills we're teaching. Knitting s a physical skill and involves some practice, and we've found that the extra time makes a huge difference in a student's ability to learn. We know that it's worth that smidgen more time and money because our clients keep coming back, falling in love with knitting and making things they love!
