Knits inspired by the traditions of Scandinavia and the Shetlands have always been popular and at the moment reflect a top fashion trend.
This workshop will give you an insight into the history; the yarns and the colours that characterize this style of knitting.
Rowan’s ‘Nordic Tweed’ and Christmas designs are at the pinnacle of this design trend .We will work on practice pieces based on these collections and consolidate the techniques used – finishing; chart work and colour work to give you the confidence to make your own northern knit!
