Event description

Description

An opportunity for you to learn how to knit the Skye Throw which was part of Alison’s 2018 Knit Camp Collection.

By combining simple lace and texture, you can create a chunky throw with a neat bobble-edge. This can be easily adapted to make it smaller or bigger. The stitches were also used to create a Skye Evening Wrap which is beaded. You can either knit it in one solid shade, or choose several shades for a colourblock effect.

ACS Skye Throw

Alison will also talk about this pattern, and how to knit this stitch in the round but the teaching on this day is focused on the chunky throw. Note, however, that you can substitute aran or DK yarn if you bring the appropriate needles. All the stitches and the special bobble cast-off will the taught in full.

Suitable for: a reasonably confident knitter who has mastered the basics and wants to learn more. Whilst not suitable for beginners, it is fairly easy so will be good both for those with a little less confidence, and advanced knitters who will enjoy a fast and straightforward project.

You will need:

1 x set of 7mm needles OR (and this is what Alison used) a 7mm circular needle that is 80cm long measured tip-to-tip (it is knitted flat but it is quite big).

7 x 100g balls of Rowan Cocoon OR c800m of CHUNKY weight yarn. If you want to mix up the shades, you can divide this into 2 or 3 shades in varying proportions if you wish. Note also that you can substitute aran or DK and use the appropriate needles, but the quantity of the yarns will of course vary.

You will also need a pair of 4mm needles and oddments of DK yarn IF you want to swatch the stitches and the special cast-off first (strongly recommended).

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.
