In this project based class you will be introduced to Fair Isle knitting, also known as stranded colourwork, chart reading, knitting in the round and decreasing . Please have your gauge swatch completed before the first class.

“Clayoquot Sound is home to many beasts of feather, fur and fin. Orca whales hunt salmon in the rich and bountiful waters, and put on a show for the tourists. Black bears shamble along the beaches and bald eagles soar overhead, keen eyes searching for their next meal”
