An in-person class with Jill Bigelow-Suttell
Nov 13, 9:00am-12:00pm & 1:30-4:30pm PST
Are you ready to make a statement in your knitting by mixing color patterns with color patches within a stockinette fabric. Combining Fair Isle and Intarsia isn’t difficult when you know how.
You may be comfortable with one yet fear the other — there’s no need, as you’ll learn to approach the knitting row by row, from the front and back. Yes, the key is to learn to work Fair Isle from the ‘wrong’ side as you work flat. Jill will share the tips and tricks for a beautiful result with no holes and show how to avoid tangles and frustration along the way.
Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class
Students must be able to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off without supervision. Some experience with Intarsia or Stranded knitting (Fair Isle) will be helpful but is not required. Bring a sense of adventure!
