Knitting with Colour – 3 Week Course – May – June 2018

7.00pm – 9.00pm at Kathy’s Knits
Tuesday 22 May, 29 May and 5 June 2018
£65 per person for the class

Have fun with colour while making a small case for your essential knitting accessories.

During this three-week block of colour-work classes, we will learn how to combine different colours to create beautiful designs. Starting with a simple, but stunningly effective slip stitch pattern, we will go on to explore “intarsia” and “stranded knitting” (of which Fair Isle knitting is a form) techniques.

Once completed, each panel will form part of your own fold-over case, created in colours chosen by you.

These classes are suitable for those who can already knit and purl and who wish to discover the delights of colour knitting.

Professional Starting and Finishing Techniques – June 2018

7.00pm – 9.00pm at Kathy’s Knits
Tuesday 12, 19, 26 June
£65 per person for the class

After dedicating all those precious hours to create your beautifully knitted fabric, don’t let your approach to finishing and sewing-up stop you from producing a gorgeous “handmade” – as opposed to “homemade” – garment.

This series of classes will focus on those techniques to achieve a professional finish, including blocking, picking-up stitches for necklines and button bands, sewing-up seams using mattress stitch and short-row shaping.

These classes are excellent preparation for those about to embark on their first garment and for more experienced knitters who wish to improve their finishing techniques.
