Event description

Description

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from internationally acclaimed designer Anniken Allis.

*Please note that this is a half day workshop*

So that a garment can be knitted in the round, the traditional method of steeking is commonly used in Norwegian and fair isle patterns to cut the holes needed for armholes or down the front of cardigans.

This workshop will include how to reinforce a steek before cutting, the 'steek sandwich', how to cut and how to pick up for edgings. We'll also cover topics such as why steeks are used, how they are used in various designs, and the benefits of being able to knit items in the round without worrying about armholes or knitting fronts of cardigans separately.

This workshop will require you to knit a fair isle swatch in the round (pattern will be provided) in advance of the workshop.

Skills needed: Knit, purl, cast on and cast off. You will need to knit a fair isle tube before the workshop.

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.
