fairisle class

New class — starting May 9, Traditional Fairisle Knitting.

You will learn all the major fairisle techniques by making a sampler vest which incorporates shaped and/or straight armholes. You will learn how to--

• set and cut steeks
• do fair isle ribbing
• do a three needle bindoff at the shoulders
• pick up stitches and knit a border
• incorporate buttonholes
• pick up stitches around the armholes
• make facings

The yarn used for the sampler vest is fingering to sportweight in four colors. I will have kits, which are available for an extra $8.00 materials fee.

Cost of the three week class: $65.00.

The class will run for 3 Saturdays, starting on May 9th. Email me for more information or to reserve your place!
