Fair Isle Knit Class in MelroseWord has it  that there’s still room in the April 29, 2013 Fair Isle Knitting class that I’m teaching in Melrose.  I’ll show your three different ways to try knitting with 2 colors in the same row, show you how to read charts, get you thinking about color choices and details that will improve your workmanship and finishing for Fair Isle knitting.  It’s just one night, so we practice on a small sample (pictured above).

Bring along 3 contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles.  If you’re happy to work on double pointed needles or with the magic loop method, great!  If not, we’ll work with straight needles and sew up your sample.  Cast on 36 stitches and work 2 rows in purl stitch before class.  This way, you can concentrate on the fair isle while we’re together.

To register, go to the Melrose Adult Education.  Need yarn?  Sit and Knit in Melrose will give you a 10% discount on class supplies with your registration confirmation.  If you have any questions, email me at tactile @ mac dot com.
