Instructor: Lisa Ellis
Intermediate knitting. Basic Fair Isle experience helpful but not necessary. Must be able to knit in the round. Note: Basic Fair Isle will be explained in class. No Homework.
This class is all about learning the colorful accents and edgings to Andean knitting. It’s a creative class where we finger-crochet popcorn bobbles, knit punta scalloped edgings and attach traditional Chullo earflaps. We’ll play in color using basic Andean charts and discuss finishing touches using fringes and braids. We’ll even cover eliminating jogs on the striped rounds and a perfect edging to the earflaps. This class is a plethora of techniques that can be applied to a multitude of projects. The brighter the colors - the better!
