Colourwork and Steeking Class - Sheep Carousel

Availability: In stock (6)

$60 – 3 sessions plus materials

This jolly tea cosy features a carousel of Shetland sheep and offers a small sampler of many of my favourite hand-knitting techniques: stranded colourwork, steeks, vikkel braids, corrugated ribbing, i-cord and centred double decreases. Practice on your teapot before trying these things out on a sweater! Required experience: Advanced beginner. Student should already know how to knit, purl, decrease and increase and how to knit in the round.
