Unravel the mystery of stranded colourwork! This workshop will introduce you to the different styles of colourwork, including Fair Isle (Shetland Island) and Nordic styles like Sebu and Setesdal (Norway), as well as modern and non-traditional colorwork patterns like geometric mountains, waves, and spirals to modern bikes, and animals. You'll try your hand swatching some simpler colourwork patterns and then choose your first project to tackle.

Instructor: Raffaella $170 (all project materials provided)

November 9 & 16, 11:00am - 3:00pm

Project: After working on some sample colourwork swatches to try out different styles like Fair Isle or Scandinavian motifs, students will have the option to select from a variety of different colourwork patterns that match their skill level and ambition (options include a pair of coffee cup cozies, fingerless gloves, mittens, hot water bottle cover). Students will be given a selection of yarn colours to choose from. All materials are provided for the workshop, at the end of the session you will be able to purchase additional supplies to take home for any future projects.

This workshop will give you a quick refresh on knitting basics and introduce other techniques including knitting in-the-round, magic-loop knitting, stranded colourwork (charts, floats), knitting swatches, invisible seamless cast-on, and sewn bind-off. And as always, there'll be some interesting knitting trivia to dazzle your friends with.

8 hours of instruction over two sessions
A helpful knitting guide including video tutorials for your reference outside of the workshop to help you finish your project.
A project bag with everything you need to get started knitting including yarn for your project.

Prerequisite: All are welcome, but it's helpful to have some limited knitting experience (or be an ambitious beginner). If you're a brand new knitter, get in touch and Raffaella can help you prepare with a little coaching ahead of the workshop.
