Fair Isle Knitting Technique with Sheila Joynes

We’re excited to announce our first class, Introduction to Fair Isle Knitting Technique!
Sheila Joynes, author of the best selling Leisure Arts book I Can’t Believe I’m Fair Isle Knitting, will teach you the basics of two handed, stranded color knitting called Fair Isle. Learn the best cast on technique for corrugated ribbing to help prevent those unsightly puckers in your purls. Discover where and how to join yarns to prevent having to weave in all the endless ends created in Fair Isle. Class projects are a Fair Isle cowl and hat.

Interested? You should be comfortable knitting in the round to fully benefit from this class. You will use two colors simultaneously using both English and continental method of knitting.

Sheila Joynes has taught at Stitches events and as well as local yarn shops, and her popular classes on Fair Isle fill up quickly. Her designs are seen in Vogue Knitting, Soho Publishing, Creative Knitting and Simply Shetland. Sheila loves to teach, and she believes that learning a new skill makes her students feel good and successful about themselves.

This class is four hours of instruction in (2) two hour sessions on Saturday, March 29 and Saturday, April 19, 12-2pm. The class fee is $45. Materials will be available at the shop, including Sheila’s book.
