Fairisle & Colour Knitting with Brandon Mably
Enjoy a creative knitting demonstration with Brandon Mably from the Kaffe Fassett Design Studio. This workshop will be for knitters who are interested in sharpening their colour observation in design.
Participants should know how to knit and purl – only the basic stocking stitch will be used in the workshop. This course inspires knitters to sharpen their observation of colour by working with a range of light and dark colors in contrasting tones. The experience gained should give knitters the confidence to use their own personal colour scheme in any of their own designs in the future.

Brandon Mably will give an introduction to the Persian Poppy design.
Students will work from the Persian Poppy Graph which will be provided.
Class participants should bring to class a selection of 6 light or bright colours for the poppy plus 6 dark or deeper colors for the background in a mixture of 4 ply or fingering weight yarns.
There will be extra colors of yarn available at loop so that Brandon can help students with other choices of colours.
Brandon will demonstrate the method of carrying yarn in fairisle and intarsia knitting and then work with students as they apply the technique to their own knitting.
Attention will be paid to colour, texture, pattern and everyone will work on a
swatch using at least 12 colours.
Only the basic stocking stitch will be used so this workshop is a great way for beginners as well who would like to start doing colourwork.
