If you’ve ever admired all of those fantastic colorwork patterns but were overwhelmed with figuring out fair isle, then this is the class for you! Stash is pleased to welcome Fran Biel, a fair isle fanatic! Fran will be teaching “Fun with Fair Isle” on July 8th from 12:30-3:30. Cost is $35.
Fran is a recent Corvallis transplant, having moved here from Pittsburgh, PA in December. When she’s not knitting, Fran can be found managing a research lab at OSU or trying desperately to get excited about running. She also enjoys hiking and baking.
Students will learn fair isle techniques while working on their very own fair isle hat. Edith the Hat would be a great project to work on this summer; it’s small, portable and you can wear it when the chilly temperatures inevitably return in the winter!
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate – Students must know how to cast on, knit, purl, work in the round and decrease
Materials: 100g of fingering-weight yarn in two colors (50g for each color), 16″ circular needles in sizes 0 and 1.5 (or needles needed to achieve gauge), double-pointed needles in the larger of the needle sizes, stitch markers. 15% off materials purchased in store.
Fran used a skein of Baah! La Jolla and a skein of Shibui Sock in natural for the class sample! It’s truly gorgeous!! Our fingering weight section has lots of new arrivals, so there are plenty of great color combos to choose from.
Stop into the shop, check out the awesome sample, and sign up for the class!
