In this class you will learn the basics of selecting colours and fibers for a fair isle project. You will learn how to knit using two strands at a time, one in each hand, while reading a chart, using the Philosopher's Wool method of catching floats. The best part is preparing your crochet steek and cutting into your knitting to make an opening. Finishing techniques learned will include picking up stitches to make a button band, button holes, and sewing on buttons.

Please bring 3.75mm double pointed needles, 3.75mm crochet hook, sharp scissors, stitch markers, darning needle, notebook, and pencil to the first class.
