Tanis Gray - Fair Isle 101 - Friday Morning
Freaked over Fair Isle? Curious about stranded colorwork techniques? Intimidated by multiple strands of yarn in multiple colors? Not sure how gauge works or how to trap those floats? This is the workshop for you! We’ll cover basic Fair Isle knitting techniques for English, Continental and Combination knitters, tackle common issues, proper technique, color theory, how to trap floats, Fair Isle history and set good Fair Isle knitting habits. We’ll put everything we learned into practice and knit the retreat-debuting Small World-themed stranded colorwork cowl, pictured here.
