Steeking is a way to create openings by cutting into your knitted fabric. Steeking is used in Fair Isle knitting and you can use it to turn a pullover sweater into a cardigan. During the first hour of this class, we will learn how to reinforce the steek with slip-stitch and sewing, cut our swatch and pick up for ribbing. During the second part of the class, we will start on Intarsia – a wonderful colourwork technique in which blocks of colour are worked with separate balls of yarn or bobbins. Unlike Fair Isle or stranded knitting, the yarns are not carried across the back of the work between colour changes. We will continue with intarsia during a small part of the next class. Materials needed: · Steeking - sharp small scissors, crochet hook two times smaller than the recommended size you used for your swatch, tapestry needle. · Intarsia - 2 colours in DK, worsted or aran yarn. Needle’s size suitable for your yarn.
