Nordic Traditions Workshop with Karie Westermann
22 May, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 5:30 pm£59
This class will introduce you to the many, varied knitting traditions of Scandinavia and the Nordic region. Together with Danish knitwear designer Karie Westermann, you will explore Icelandic, Faroese, Norwegian and Danish knitting heritage as you knit colourwork ‘the Nordic way’.
We’ll discuss authentic colour choices and regional differences in colourwork among other things. You’ll have the choice between making two different styles of wrist warmers on the day – and we’ll even talk about a certain famous Faroese jumper! You will also get a chance to look at Karie’s gorgeous samples.
Intermediate – you need to be comfortable knitting in the round and be able to follow an easy colourwork chart.
2 colours of DK yarn (wool or wool-blend), 50g of one, 25g of the other.
4mm needles (we’ll be working both back & forth as well as in the round with small circumference – bring your preferred needles for this)
2 stitch markers (optional)
