Knit in Colour Class
One of the best things about knitting is playing with colour. Fair Isle Knitting is a technique that produces beautiful, multicoloured patterns by carrying several different colours of yarn within the same row. In this class we will explore Fair isle techniques including several methods for carrying yarn, tension tips, and colour combining. Although this is a class that focuses on technique we will also discuss choosing a beginner Fair Isle pattern and several options for a first project will be presented in class.
