Fair Isle and Steeking with Anniken Allis

is commonly used in Norwegian and fair isle patterns to cut the holes needed for armholes or down the front of cardigans.
This workshop will include how to reinforce a steek before cutting, the 'steek sandwich', how to cut and how to pick up for edgings.
We'll also cover topics such as why steeks are used, how they are
used in various designs, and the benefits of being able to knit items in the round without worrying about armholes or knitting fronts of cardigans separately.
Stranded colour work includes both traditional fair isle and traditional Scandinavian colour work.
You will learn how to work with two colours at a time, how to hold two colours, how to strand the yarn, how to knit in the round using the magic loop technique and how to read a fair isle/stranded colour work chart.
