Learn Stranded (fair isle) Knitting

            July 27 - 29

 

This 3-day, 2 night retreat will be all about stranded  knitting.  We will begin on Monday morning at 10 am. and end on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 pm., allowing for 3 full days of instruction - without sacrificing a summer family weekend!  Best of all, you will learn:

 

German Twisted Cast On

Corrugated Ribbing (2 color)

Holding your yarn in both hands

Catching Floats

Determining Dominant Color(s)

Tips for achieving correct tension

Adding Latvian Braid

Optional project:  learn to steek

You can select from several different patterns (we will have hat, cowl and mitt choices) using two, three or more colors of yarn.  Start at the level you feel most comfortable with, or challenge yourself with something a little more complex.  We'll supply plenty of guidance, instruction, advice and support! 

The cost of this workshop is just $275.  (You will also have the option of including an additional night at Blue Mountain (Wednesday, July 29) for just $55 - breakfast on Thursday morning is included.)
