About

In this 2-hour workshop you will gain the confidence to knit fair isle. You will produce a fair Isle sample that will enable you to go on to knit any variety of exciting projects.

You will learn how to change wool colours in a row, using straight and circular needles, how to get the tension correct, and how to read a knitting chart plus how to use your own stash for colour-work using different makes of yarn. Monica will also cover how to sew in ends. She will show you how fair isle can be part of an item or a complete project.
