Wool on the Exe
A Yarn Tasting with Anniken Allis
Sometimes it's hard to imagine how a particular yarn will look and feel when you start working with it. In this class you will knit with a variety of yarns and fibres in a choice of stitch patterns to suit all abilities. We will discuss yarn construction, fibre content, suitable stitch patterns, suitable garments and accessories and how all these factors relate to each other. We'll also talk about how to substitute yarns and how to do effective swatching.
You will leave this class feeling more confident in choosing yarns and fibres for your projects.
Please bring: knitting needles in a selection of sizes from 3.25mm to 6mm.
Skills needed: Knit, purl, cast on and cast off.
This workshop is led by designer/author Anniken Allis
