Have you fallen in love with all the Scandinavian-style colourwork jumpers and cardis around at the moment? This workshop will teach you the skills you need to make your very own collection.

Fair Isle knitting is the art of using several different colours of yarn at the same time to knit patterns and even small pictures into your knitting.
Steeking is a shortcut used to knit garments such as sweaters in the round without interruptions for openings or sleeves until the end. The steek itself is a bridge of extra stitches, in which the cut is made. The technique was developed in Scandinavia and the Shetland Islands and is especially useful for making Fair Isle sweaters.

Learn how to work with two colours at a time, how to strand the yarn, how to knit in the round and how to read a fair isle chart.
In the afternoon, you'll learn how to re-enforce the 'steek', how to cut the fabric and pick up for edgings.

Suitable for competent, intermediate knitters.

Cost: £59 including home-cooked lunch and tea-time treats
