Anna Maltz – Introducton in Marlisle technique

Anna speaks also perfectly Dutch so language should not be a problem.
Maximum participant is 15 per workshop.

Marlisle is a new system of creating decorative texture and colour shifts in handknitted fabric with a particular focus on seamless knitting in the round. By separating out two yarns generally being held together to form a marl base, Marlisle allows patches of stranded colourwork to be scattered around a garment or accessory without the use of intarsia while avoiding unworkably long floats.

This class is an introduction to the technique of Marlisle. You’ll create a circular swatch from a choice of designs provided and use this as an entry point into understanding the system. Suitable for a range of skill levels, but perhaps most exciting for knitters who have experimented with stranded colourwork and intarsia and understand the limitations of these existing techniques. The aim is to send you off inspired.

Skill level (intermediate):


Existing knowledge required:
– experience of colourwork
– knitting in the round

Skills covered:
– following a stitch pattern on stitch related graph paper

Students to bring:
