Come and join me on this 1 day knitting course which will introduce you to the basics of designing your own fair isle patterns.
You will learn the basic elements that make up designing a fair isle pattern by creating your own cowl design incorporating colour, patterns and then making it all fit together.
This course is suitable for any student who wants to know more about creating fair isle.
I will provide design paper, a selection of design resources and colouring pencils but students may wish to bring a notebook and any design inspiration they might wish to incorporate.
While the focus of the day is on designing your cowl you may wish to bring knitting needles and yarns to get started or swatch colours.
I recommend a 3 - 3.5mm circular needle for a cowl and work with J&S Shetland 2ply jumper weight.
Materials and needles can be purchased at the workshop if students wish.
