Wild Fair Isle Knitting at the FIBRE BREAK AWAY 6-11 September 2015


Participants should be intermediate to experienced  knitters

"Fair Isle” differs from “Intarsia” by using only two colours per row/round of knitting while Intarsia uses many colours per row.
I’ll show you the two-handed way where you use your left hand for one colour and your right hand for the second colour.
You can then decide whether you want to use traditional patterns or try my Wild Knitting style playing with patterns and omitting the serious counting.
