Mary Jane Mucklestone – Fresh Fair Isle
Mary Jane Muckelstone – Fresh Fair Isle
Sunday, March 29 from 10am -5pm
Class Level: Intermediate
Technique requirements: Experience working in the round with stranded colorwork. Description: Liven up your Fair Isle knitting! Spend the day with Mary Jane, author of 200 Fair Isle Motifs: A Knitters Directory, exploring fresh new colorways. This course will introduce the basics of color theory and how to use its principles to guide your color choices. We will learn about the use of color over the years in traditional Fair Isle knitting and move beyond, developing our own personal color schemes. We’ll analyze how different color combinations can completely change how a motif looks. Knitting a simple stranded wristlet or fingerless glove will
quickly illustrate new concepts.
Supplies for class: Between 3 and 8 colors (or more, more colors = more fun!) of fingering weight wool yarn (Shetland Wool preferred), 25-100 yds of each color; US size 3 (3.25mm) dpns or your preferred needles for working small diameter pieces in the round; tapestry needle; scissors; stitch markers. Graph paper and colored pencils, if desired.
Homework: With any color fingering-weight yarn you like, CO 48 sts. Place marker, join to work in the round without twisting. Work k1, p1 rib for 1″ (2.5 cm).
