The FAIRISLE CLUB is a fun, limited edition, knitalong improving your fairisle technique, whilst creating a beautiful blanket.
This new blanket is inspired by Nordic and Scandinavian fairisle design and whole blanket uses just 11 colours of Rowan Felted Tweed. The blanket is made up of 10 sections, each worked off the other except for sections 1 and 2. These are knitted separately and are sewn together and then section 3 is knitted off the joined sections. This means that the only sewing up is this seam between sections 1 and 2.
Being Nordic inspired, the fairisle patterns are more graphic and combined with the contrasting colours make this blanket easier to knit than the Fairisle Club 1 blanket as the repeats are easier to follow.
Booking is now live and the club will be limited to 500 members only. The knitalong will start on the 1st November and will run for 10 months. Please note that the yarn is not included in the price of the membership.
The EMAIL and PRINTED OPTIONS are now sold out. There are still places available for the DIGITAL membership only.
Digital membership - £87 no shipping
The new Digital membership is for the 10 digital patterns and the digital version of the HOW TO BOOKLET, including a link to the HOW TO fairisle video. Please note that the Fairisle Club 2 bag , folder and printed How To booklet cannot be added at a later date.
