Fair Isle Workshop with Tanya Thomann (3 hours)

In class you’ll cast on, learn to knit with one yarn in each hand, and follow charts with ease. Tanya will have a hat pattern ready for the workshop, and you'll learn tips and tricks for catching floats, keeping knitting loose and adjusting for gauge differences when knitting will be addressed.
Pre-requisites: Participants should be confident with knitting, purling, working in the round and have confidence exploring new techniques.
