Shetland Wool Week Hat / TBD

Shetland Wool Week Hat / TBD

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Every year an official free pattern is released for Shetland Wool Week. This year's is Bonnie Isle by Linda Shearer.

The colourwork method we'll teach uses both continental and English styles of knitting (i.e., picking and throwing). With some practice (and possibly tensioning adjustments), you should be able to create a consistent gauge with both hands. You will also learn about colour dominance in colourwork.

The goal of this workshop is to get you comfortable with two-handed colourwork and help you understand how to read a colourwork pattern. (We won't begin the hat in the workshop but instead will knit a gauge swatch in the round in colourwork to determine which size of hat to knit.)
