Learn the basics of how to use punchcards on your knitting machine- learning how to control, manipulate and design your own on this two day knit workshop.
During the first day you will master the punchcard mechanism exploring all of the above through a range of knitted samples using provided pre-punched designs. We will also cover in depth how you can design and develop your own patterns on your own machine.
From the samples created on your first day you will have the confidence and skill to design your own fair isle scarf with my support throughout. During the day you will learn how to calculate tension swatches, joining techniques, and finishing processes.
By the end of the course you will leave with a scarf to be proud of and the knowledge to continue knitting and exploring fair isle on your own.
All materials are provided. You may wish to bring a camera and notebook to write your own personal notes.
