Turning to Texture - Two Workshops with Woolly Wormhead - This is Knit
As the winds pick up and the leaves start to turn, we find ourselves being drawn more and more to textured knits. Airy lace is being left behind for the simple comforts of garter stitch and cables are creeping in, overtaking smooth stockinette. If you too would like to incorporate more unique textures in to your projects this winter, then we have two fantastic special guest workshops coming up that will help you to do just that. TurningSideways445 Turning Sideways explores the magic of rotating stitch patterns on their sides, how this affects increases and decreases, and how to use this method to your advantage. The techniques are discussed in the context of hat design specifically, but they can be made applicable to many other projects too. ReversibleCables445 Reversible Cables - In this class you will work through a number of different swatches for reversible cables to learn how they are constructed. Together with Woolly you will look at how changing their component stitches affects the overall pattern, and then consider how they can be used with shaping and integrated into garments and accessories. About Woolly: Woolly is a fully qualified and experienced teacher & lecturer of Art, Design & Textiles. She thinks of her work in terms of architecture and finds hats fascinating, as they are relatively quick to knit, but also endlessly versatile. Her classes are enjoyable and informative, with professional workshop notes provided. Would you like to sign up for both classes? Use the promo code WoollyByTwo to receive a €10 discount when booking both sessions.
