The FAIRISLE CLUB is a fun, limited edition, knitalong improving your fairisle technique, whilst creating a beautiful blanket.
The first blanket for the Fairisle Club will be the Traditional Fairisle Throw. It is made up of 12 individual fairisle squares, each knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed. The designs for each square are inspired by traditional fairisle motifs and shapes found in the Shetlands and Northern Europe. Each square will compliment the other, mainly in use of colour, creating a beautiful throw that will look amazing on your bed, sofa….or even on a wall.
Each square measures 46cm x 46cm when blocked and are knitted ‘flat’ on straight needles. The squares can be knitted in the round but they would have to be steeked and think may make the seams too bulky. Once the squares have been joined, the throw is finished by attaching a vertical striped edging – as seen on the Sage Throw.
The finished throw measures 146cm (57.5 ins) wide x 190cm (75 ins) long.
Photographs of the finished throw will be published one week before the start date for bookings, so that you can see it and decide if you wish to join.
