FAIRISLE CLUB 4

 

The FAIRISLE CLUB is a fun, limited edition, knitalong improving your fairisle technique, whilst creating a beautiful fairisle project.

 

ABOUT

 

FAIRISLE CLUB 4 is a beautiful  jacket called MAGNOLIA, which is made using various techniques creating a design which is totally unique. FAIRISLE CLUB 4 is a kit comprising of all the yarn (Rowan Felted Tweed) plus the full printed pattern, the lovely flower metal shawl pin from Textile Garden and an exclusive canvas FAIRISLE CLUB 4 project bag. The club will be supported again by videos showing you the various techniques as Marie knits the garment again. Therefore you will be able to knitalong with Marie or at your own pace referring to the videos when you wish. Only FAIRISLE CLUB 4 members will have access to these videos. Once you are a member of the FAIRISLE CLUB you are able to buy any of the previous projects.

 

MAGNOLIA is a steeked garment. This year Marie has allowed 9 steek stitches in the design instead of the 5 stitches that were worked in LERWICK, the FAIRISLE CLUB 3 garment. Marie will be showing different methods of working and cutting the steeks so that you can choose the method you will be most comfortable to use.

 

DETAILS

 

FAIRISLE CLUB 4 will be open for pre-orders from the 1st JUNE until the 1st AUGUST or until 500 members have been reached, whichever is the soonest. The club has to close on the 1st August to ensure that Rowan will have enough time to make the yarn. The knitalong will start and first video will be released on Monday 19th November.
