Learn Fair Isle Knitting - June 15th, 9-noon.

Learn Fair Isle Knitting - June 15th, 9-noon.

Discover the joy and beauty of Fair Isle knitting!

We will guide you through the basics of this classic style of colorwork knitting while knitting the hat shown.

Fair Isle knitting, also known as stranded colorwork knitting, is a technique for working two (or more) colors of yarn in the same row. It can be used for a wide variety of patterns from very simple to extremely complex designs.

The color changes in Fair Isle are generally close together. This allows you to carry the yarn you aren't knitting with across the back of the work as you go. You will be creating floats on the back side of the work.

Fair Isle knitting makes a nice warm fabric because all those floats add extra bulk and warmth. That makes this a great technique to use for small colorwork patterns on bags, sweaters, socks, and other projects where the back side doesn't show.

This class will be a warm-up to the "Knit a Sweater that Fits" series that is also ready for signups! We will be using a similar colorwork pattern.

When: Saturday, June 15th, 9am-noon.

Where: 113 W. Franklin Street in Waxahachie 

You must be comfortable knitting in the round. 

For this class you will need 2 contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn. We have plenty to choose from in the shop!

And US6 and US8 16inch circular needles.

There will be a small amount of homework prior to the class so make sure you leave a good email when signing up.
