Improve your Fair Isle Knitting!
Some people are put off Fair Isle knitting because they think it is difficult and may have problems achieving an even tension.
In this workshop Juliet will show you how to knit two-handed Fair Isle, with one yarn on each hand. Using this technique is a great way to improve your Fair Isle. You will be so pleased with the results you will only want to knit colourwork.
The pattern for the workshop is a mug cosy.
Participants should be able to knit in the round and have tried Fair Isle knitting.
Here you can read who Juliet Bernard is.
