You will be introduced to the basic techniques used in Fair Isle knitting using methods used in traditional Shetland knitting. This is an introduction to how to knit with two colours in the round and the use of colour and pattern placement in Fair Isle knitting will also be discussed.
During the class you will knit a Fair Isle wrist warmer and you will be given tips and information to enable you to start your own Fair Isle project after the class.
Participants need to be able to cast on, and knit garter stitch, as Donna will teach you how to work in the round and use two colours.
Here you can read about Donna Smith.
