Super excited for this one!!

This class will introduce you to the many, varied knitting traditions of Scandinavia and the Nordic region. Together with Danish knitwear designer Karie Westermann, you will explore Icelandic, Faroese, Norwegian and Danish knitting heritage as you knit colourwork ‘the Nordic way’.

We’ll discuss authentic colour choices and regional differences in colourwork among other things. You’ll have the choice between making two different styles of wrist warmers on the day – and we’ll even talk about a certain famous Faroese jumper! You will also get a chance to look at Karie’s gorgeous samples.

  • Learning outcomes: Norwegian twisted cast-on, Continental knit + purl, colour theory, colour dominance, achieving even tension, knitting using two knitting styles, ability to differ between Icelandic/Faroese/Norwegian + Swedish knitting design traditions.
