Event description

Description

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from inspiring expert teacher and designer Alison Crowther-Smith.

Slip-stitch colourwork is such a simple yet highly effective colorwork technique and this workshop will showcase how to use it with this tartan-inspired pattern by Alison Crowther-Smith.

Slipstitch Colourwork Throw

Choose from a large throw in DK wool or a smaller scarf in Kidsilk Haze. This is at the simple end of slip stitch colour work and is a great introduction to this colour work technique that provides a simple and straightforward alternative to Fairisle or intarsia. It is not suitable for complete beginners, but you need only be confident with casting on and off, knit, purl and pattern reading.

The workshop will begin with a swatch-session enabling you to practice all the main elements of the project after which you will cast on your own project.

Please bring your own lunch. There are also many local places to buy lunch nearby.

Tea-time treats and refreshments will also be served.

Either book here through Eventbrite, call 01626 836203 or pop into the shop in person.

Workshop attendees receive a discount voucher on the day, valid for one month from the date of the workshop on yarn and accessories.
