WORKSHOP — An Introduction to Fair Isle Knitting

If you’ve always wanted to have a go at Fair Isle knitting, but have been put off because it looks too complicated, then this workshop is for you! The session will take you through the basic principles and techniques involved, and putting them into practice on a sample swatch. Those wanting a further challenge can try knitting with both hands - not at all essential, but it does make knitting larger Fair Isle projects a little faster!

Suitable for any knitter with a basic knowledge of casting on, casting off and knit & purl stitches, who is looking to expand their skill set.
