Creating Fair Isle Cowls
Saturday, January 18, 2020
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
In this class we will explore the process of designing a colorwork cowl. From edge trims to motif layout and the importance of scale, the pro-cess will be broken down into a series of manageable steps. I will explain how I go about developing a pat-tern while sharing tips and tricks I have learned along the way. At the end of the class students will have swatched, completed all the necessary calculations, and even cast on for their very own design!
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; know-ing how to read color work charts will be helpful, but this skill will be discussed during class for those who might need a review.
Supplies to Bring:
2 to 5 skeins of different colors of yarn, all worsted weight; circular knitting needles appropriate for the yarn you have selected (I like to have a variety of needles with me when creating a new design); stitch markers; pencil; stick ruler; measuring tape; calculator; sticky notes or magnetic board to keep your place on the chart; and the usual knitting bag filled with supplies.
Materials Fee (to Be Paid Directly to the Teacher):
