New Nordic knitting: An introduction to Norwegian stranded colour work (CLASS FULL)
October 28, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Sunday, October 28, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm | $150 | Registration required (Max. 15 students)
Norwegian stranded colour work is all about tension. In this intimate class, which is limited to just 15 students, you will learn the basics of Norwegian style stranded knitting with 2 colours from expert Nordic knitters ARNE & CARLOS, who will show you the easiest and most relaxing way to hold the needles and the yarns, and teach you important techniques and tricks that will help you achieve perfect tension while keeping all of your stitches even and beautiful, in true Norwegian style! We will work with bulky yarn and thick needles and practice our colour work while knitting a hat with the traditional X and O pattern, which is the easiest Norwegian pattern that you could possibly work with.
Whether you are an inexperienced or experienced knitter, if you have ever wanted to learn how to knit stranded colour work as it is done in Norway and the other Nordic countries by master knitters who come from that part of the world, this is the class for you!
This is a small, intimate class where you will get the opportunity to talk with Arne & Carlos while you learn to knit Norwegian style. Refreshments will be served. The class will be held in the shop. Call the shop at (401) 336-5578 to reserve your spot.
