Sunday 3rd June 2018

Come and join Marie at the beautiful Brooksby Hall in Leicestershire to learn to create a lovely textured cowl. This is a great project to learn the technique of Twisted Stitches. Over the last few months lots of you have asked for a workshop showing how to work Twisted Stitches. We've chosen SKYE from NORTH SEA as the inspiration for the project design as it's a design that knitters want to knit but some are not confident to do so because of the twisted stitch section. The aim of this workshop is to show you how easy it is to work twisted stitches, therefore giving confidence to go on and knit the SKYE garment or another design. The cowl is knitted in the round using Rowan Felted Tweed and this project is suitable for those knitters who have some experience of textured knitting but it is achievable by the confident beginner.
