ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP...
Here at RESTORATION LONDON we absolutely love Hand Knitting. Not only is it very eco friendly as it never leaves any waste or cut offs like woven fabrics, but it is so good for your mind and is a very therapeutic skill to learn!
If you would love to learn the basic skills of knitting, along with creating a pattern using the intarsia method then this is the workshop for you!
PLEASE NOTE: We aim to share a recording of our online workshops after the session so that you can continue learning in your own time! If you would prefer not to have the session recorded and shared with the group, please let us know, and we will accommodate.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN...
In this 1.5 hour online workshop, we will teach you how to cast on using the traditional cast on method of hand knitting. You will then learn how to create a rib using a series of knit and purl stitches.
Next we will show you how to change colour to create an intarsia checkerboard pattern, using 2 different colours in a stocking stitch and lastly we’ll show you how to cast off.
You will leave the workshop having learnt all the skills you need to start knitting various intarsia patterns and could even make a start on knitting that winter scarf!
We will also give you a recording of the workshop so that you can refer back to it whenever you need for as long as you like!
