Combining Fair Isle & Intarsia: Scout Shawl - Virtual September 30th
A 2-hour group class with Florence Spurling taught virtually via Zoom. In this colourwork focused class, students will explore the key techniques that are used within the Scout Shawl and Mini Scout Shawl patterns. The main differences between Fair Isle and intarsia will be explored, as well as advice on working with multiple yarns at the same time, and how to achieve a professional looking finish when transitioning between pattern blocks. Student will follow a colourwork chart and put these method to practice, resulting in a multi-coloured and multi-technique swatch. Upon completion of the class, students will be able to tackle other projects that feature flat Fair Isle knitting and intarsia with confidence. No experience in the intarsia method is needed, but it is recommended to have some experience with Fair Isle knitting.
The class will be recorded and available for 2 weeks after the class date.
