Hone your stranded colorwork skills & learn to knit & purl the Norwegian way. In this 3 hour workshop you will have the opportunity to learn from world renowned knit designers Arne & Carlos. The project will be a Traditional Christmas Ball that will be an exclusive design for their 2022 American Tour. An extra special touch for your family tree or a gift for a loved one.
Scandinavians Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrisson are highly regarded fashion designers, textile artists, YouTubers and authors. They are best known for their original, colourful and visually striking designs, as well as their knitwear and their books. Their work is highly influenced by their Scandinavian background and everyday life in rural Norway.
This is a beginner workshop, but we recommend that you have done at least one stranded colorwork project & are familiar with the technique. We will be offering complimentary stranded knitting workshops throughout the Fall prior to the Arne & Carlos Workshops. Our knitters are also always happy to recommend a first pattern & help you get started so you are ready to go!
Here are the materials you will need to bring to the workshop. Please make any necessary purchases well in advance of the workshop, as there will not be time to shop before the workshop.
Gauge: 22 stitches and 28 rows in stockinette per 4”. Adjust the needle size to obtain the correct gauge if necessary.
