About the event

This is an adult workshop, taught by Elizabeth Seward, author of Teaching Through Stories: Jane and Jeremy Learn to Knit. Knitting in the round is traditionally taught in 5th grade in Waldorf schools, and there are often students who have not knitted before.

We will make a knitted water bottle cover, or small knitted pouch together.

This workshop is intended for those who want to learn knitting in the round (“4-needle” or “5-needle” knitting), for teachers, and for those who need an easy way to introduce students to knitting in the round. You will learn how to manage knitting around in a circle, ribbing in a circle, and making drawstring holes, as well as how to make a sturdy i-cord to use as a drawstring.

The project is ideal to remind out-of-practice knitters how to knit, as well as for teachers supporting beginner knitters ages 10 and up.

    You will learn basic Fair Isle color patterning techniques to create a small drawstring pouch, including 2-color ribbing; drafting basic and relatively simple designs; carrying the ‘float’ successfully, and some basic designs for the crown. At the end of the class, you will have the skills to design and knit a first Fair Isle hat.
