Add an extra detail and skill to your next knitting project by learning a few unique and colourful Estonian techniques. Roositud is an Estonian inlay technique to create the appearance of embroidery by creating a motif from contrasting coloured floats on the right side of your knitting. Estonian knitting features many different types of braids. Braids add a bit of texture, height and interest to any cuff or hem. Knitters will knit sampler wristlets.
Experiment and explore colors in stranded color work knitting by doing a bit of coloring and knitting.
Try working with two or more colors, shading, striping and playing with variegated yarns to knit mittens as well as incorporating knitted braid varieties. This workshop will explore making color choices for mittens with techniques that can be applied to other knitting projects.
There are two workshop sessions:
10:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00
More information and booking from Knitwork
During the session you'll be able to experiment with colour combinations by colouring charts with coloured pencils and then knitting. Knitters will be provided with patterns from the Color & Knit Mittens book to play with colouring and beginning knitting. I will show you samples of colour dominance, colour blending and shading with gradients/ombres and as well as variegated and speckled dyed yarns for an illusion of more than 2 colours
