Learn how to do two-handed fair-isle while creating your own hat and selecting your own colors and stitch patterns. This class is intended for first time fair-isle knitters or people who are fairly new to fair-isle. Class will include instruction on Latvian Braids, different color work stitch patterns, catching long floats and short floats, etc. There will be plenty of options and youâ€™ll have lots of fun while creating your own hat to show off your personal style!
