Woolly Workshop – Top Down Fair Isle Yoke Knitting
October 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| £35
Circular yoke sweaters are perfect for a variety of stitch patterns. In this class we’ll particularly look at using fair isle patterns on the yoke. The class will be based on working a sweater from the top down in the round.
In this class you will learn how a circular yoke is constructed and in particular how to include a fair isle pattern. You will learn how to work the circular shaping and how to adapt it to suit your fair isle pattern. You will also learn how to calculate the numbers for your own sweater and tips on choosing fair isle patterns to work on the yoke.
Date: Tuesday 8th October, 10 am to 4 pm
Tutor: Anniken Allis
