Never shy away from another colour knitting project with this bright and colourful course. Join our experts to spend a morning tackling Fair Isle, learn a few ways to go about holding multiple colours as you work a row, and hone in on the one which is just right for your personal knitting style.
In the afternoon, knit a letter of your choice as you switch to the Intarsia technique which is used in more complex picture knits. Finish off the day with a touch of Swiss darning, an embroidery technique which acts as a marvelous dupe for knitted-in colourwork. No-one will ever know!
