Knitting Know-How is ideal for knitters who are confident with the very basics of knitting, but who now want to know more, and start to take the next steps towards making more adventurous knitting projects.
This fairly intensive workshop will explore different and decorative cast on techniques, simple cables, lace and textural stitches, knitting in the round, Fair Isle, Intarsia, shaping, finishing techniques, choosing the right yarns, how to read charts and understand patterns, and much more besides. You will be given patterns for knitting projects which you can start on and then take away
and finish at home.
Students must be familiar and confident with the
very basics of knitting such as casting on, using
both knit and purl stitches and casting off.
