Making it Up: Designing Fair Isle Hats – Friday the 15th from 9-12
This is a design class, for folks with some experience with fair isle knitting. Hats are a great way to begin designing with Fair Isle Motifs. I’ll provide a basic hat pattern which you can customize in endless ways. You might sketch some ideas that you have and I’ll help you figure out how to make them work. But don’t be afraid to come in with no idea at all. We’ll work fast and furiously and although you won’t finish a hat, you’ll leave with the skills to finish your very own fair isle design.
3 Essential Methods for Shaping in Fair Isle – Sunday the 17th from 9-12
Hmmm…today that title seems like what we have to do when on the island of Fair Isle…but we’ll be in NYC learning some tried and true ways to shape our stranded colorwork garments.
We’re going to work on a swatch to experiment with three main ways and discuss other ideas and options. Again, we’ll be knitting a lot…which is the fun of it all right?
Fair Isle Socks – Sunday the 17th 2-5
Ok, I’m partial to Fair Isle socks, and I’ve got a clever way to make knitting them easy. We’re going to make some darling wee socks to test out the system, and you’ll leave with the skills to make your own adult pair. I love this class. Well I guess I just love handknit socks!
