In this introductory course, Hazel Tindall will show you how to knit a Fair Isle circular Table Mat, using Shetland organic jumper weight yarn. Participants should be able to knit in the round with two colours. You will practise knitting in the round, knitting with two colours, reading a chart, choosing colours, shaping to give a circular mat, and will be shown how to block the mat. Techniques learned can be transferred to other knitting projects.
Materials: Yarn to complete the project is provided. Bring four 3.50mm or 3.25mm double pointed needles, 20cm – 30cm long, or your preferred needles for working small diameters in the round, or size required to obtain tension; also blunt needle and scissors.
