- 55 British pounds£55
- Boat of Garten Community Hall
This workshop will explore knitting colorwork - creating either a hat or cowl which you can design yourself. We will be working with the Anthology pattern recipe from TinCanKnits. A pattern recipe gives you multiple options, allowing you to customise and create your own design. Anthology is free to download here https://tincanknits.com/pattern/anthology Choose from a hat, tubular cowl or standard cowl - in sizes from Baby to Adult. You can make your colourwork as complex or simple as you like - we recommend selecting between 2 & 5 colours - check out the photos from TinCanKnits above for inspiration You will need some experience with knitting - knit, purl, decreasing stitches. Some experience with circular knitting is helpful but not essential The pattern provides options for Aran, DK & Sock/4ply weight yarn - see the screenshot below for yarn amounts & needles required. EXAMPLE: I am knitting a Adult large hat using 5 colours, in Aran weight. I have chosen Drops Alaska, 2 balls of my main colour & one ball of each additional colour PLEASE DO A GAUGE SWATCH BEFORE THE WORKSHOP - this will ensure you have the correct needles for your project. A great guide can be found here https://blog.tincanknits.com/2013/08/17/gauge/
