Come and join Marie at the beautiful Brooksby Hall in Leicestershire to start to make this lovely Fairisle tam. This tam is very special as it is the first showing of Marie's new yarn - BRITISH BREEDS, which will be launched at YARNDALE on the 29th & 30th September and then online from the 1st October. If you want to be amongst the very first knitters to see and use Marie's new yarn then be sure to book this workshop! This new design is actually part of Marie's new WILDWOOD collection, which is launched at the same time as BRITISH BREEDS. The tam is the perfect project to learn how to knit Fairisle as it is knitted in the round and only uses 2 colours in a round at any one time.
