Introduction to Fair Isle Knitting
Make your own fabulous designer cushion using Fair Isle techniques.

Fair Isle knitting is great for creating beautiful designs using one or more colours. If you can do both knit and purl stitch with confidence you can progress onto Fair Isle knitting.

This workshop begins with the techniques needed to get started with 2-colour (more if you like) knitting. We learn about and practice, stranding and weaving the yarns at the back of the work, how to follow a chart, then we look at choosing yarns & colours for your fair isle knitting.

We will progress into starting your own yummy designer cushion.

Your kit contains;
Pattern
2 x 100g Skeins of Aran Knitting Wool 100% Bluefaced Leicester
1 x 50g Aran knitting wool 100% Bluefaced Leicester
5 Buttons

Our tutor for this workshop is Judith Schur.

Judith is a popular and accomplished knitwear designer who has been sharing and developing skills in others for many years.
