Event description

Description

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from designer Claire Crompton, author of The Knitters Bible.

Reversible knitting is an intriguing technique that makes a double-layered fabric which is the same on both sides. Stocking stitch ends up with two knit sides which means items made in double knitting always show a 'right' side. It is ideal for scarves and blankets because it lies flat and it also makes very cosy hats, sweaters, mittens etc.

Colour patterns such as Fair Isle style motifs and intarsia blocks appear with the colours inverted on one side so items are reversible with no stranding or 'wrong' side showing. In the workshop, you will knit a sample of two colour reversible/double knitting to learn the basic technique. There will be a pattern to work a reversible cowl as well as ideas for designs for other items. You can also bring along a reversible/double knitting pattern that you would like to try.

Topics include: choosing suitable yarns, casting on, working knit and purl stitches in double knitting, following a chart, ideas for using reversible knitting.

You will need: Aran weight yarn in two colours, 4.5mm needles.

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.
