Marit: Advanced Fair Isle Cardigan

Instructor:

Melissa Caines

Class Description:

Level up your steeking with this amazing design by Kristin Drysdale in Finnish Tukuwool.

In this class we will knit a fair isle garment from the bottom-up and learn a variety of new, challenging and fun techniques:

- Steeked armholes and cardigan opening

- Sleeve facings for attaching sleeves and covering steeks

- Knitting a small portion of the top back and forth in stockinette stitch (learning two-handed colourwork for purling)

Students should be comfortable knitting in the round, making basic increases and decreases, knitting stranded colourwork as well as having sweater knitting experience.

$245 plus materials (includes a copy of Laine #7)
