Interweave Knitting Lab
Marriott San Mateo
San Mateo, California, USA

Knit an Ornament using Folk Knitting Techniques

During this workshop students will knit and finish a beautiful Angel Ornament.

During this 6 hour workshop you will be taught a traditional, decorative Folk cast on technique, how to knit in the round using 5 dpn, how to create simple two color folk patterns using the stranded knitting technique as well as traditional shaping techniques. As the Angel is completed you will also learn simple finishing and embroidery techniques.

This workshop is for all levels of knitters although it is a prerequisite that students should be at least advanced beginners as you will need to know how to knit and purl and, although not essential, will also be able to knit in the round with 5dpn.
