Let your knitting needles take you one a journey to Austria. In this intensive, yet lighthearted class, Donna Kay’s professional pattern designer’s expertise will be your tour guide as you focus on their unique twisted stitch patterns. These traveling stitches and cables look complicated but are quite easy to knit. You’ll learn how to read the charts and work the stitches without a cable needle. Starting with an Austrian cast on you will sample pattern stitches then start the project of your choice using Harrisville’s Highland or Shetland yarn. By the end of this four-day workshop you’ll be equipped with the confidence and skill to take on the world, or at least the twisted stitches of Austria!
Skill Level: Intermediate. Please see below for a complete list of supplies needed for this class.
Materials needed: These patterns are most easily knit circularly. Bring circular needles in the size needed for your chosen yarn. If you have any questions about your skill level requirements please reach out to Donna.
