10 November, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm£65
10th and 17th November: 6.30 – 9.00 pm
This two part class is all about taking your knitting on from purl and plain so that you can master all the techniques you need to complete Anna Maltz’s enchanting Sólja sweater pattern. Anna will introduce you to swatching in the round, knitting lace, and stranded colour-work.
In the first class will you will learn how to knit the eyelets used in the lace body of the sweater, developing your understanding of stitch gauge and tension. You’ll also start your adventure with colour, looking at how to bring colours together for the final design.
In the second class, you’ll begin working with those colours as you learn the the bi-handed technique for managing the stranded colour-work yoke, and how stitch techniques affect knitting tension.
This class is suitable for confident knit and purlers, who are already comfortable with knitting in the round on double pointed needles or using the magic loop technique.
The cost of this class does not include yarn or needles.
Students can bring their own or stock up in the shop with a 10% discount on any yarn or needles bought for the class.
