Freaked over Fair Isle? Curious about stranded colorwork techniques? Intimidated by multiple strands of yarn in multiple colors? Not sure how gauge works or how to trap those floats? This is the workshop for you! We’ll cover basic Fair Isle knitting techniques for English, Continental, and Combination knitters, tackle common issues, proper technique, how to trap floats, Latvian braids, Fair Isle history and set good Fair Isle knitting habits. We’ll put everything we learned into practice while knitting up either the Luminosu Hat or the Luminosu Cowl (knitter’s choice!). No previous colorwork experience necessary.
