Make A Hand Knitted
Nordic Angel: A Gift Day
On this one day course you will gain an insight into traditional, folk hand knitting techniques.
You will learn a decorative folk cast on, how to knit two colour folk patterns in the round with 5 double pointed needles using the stranded knitting technique, as well as traditional shaping, finishing and embroidery techniques as you knit a festive angel ornament from authentic Nordic yarns. Although the day will follow a schedule, the teaching is flexible, allowing you to go at your own pace.
This course would be ideal for the intermediate knitter who has either taken a related course or has some existing skills as you will need to be able to knit confidently in stocking stitch prior to this course.
