The Curious Crafter is excited to announce a weekend of workshops with knit celeb, Tanis Gray! September 12-13, 2020!

Freaked over Fair Isle? Curious about stranded colorwork techniques? Intimidated by multiple strands of yarn in multiple colors? Not sure how gauge works or how to trap those floats? This is the workshop for you! We’ll cover basic Fair Isle knitting techniques for English, Continental and Combination knitters, tackle common issues, proper technique, color theory, how to trap floats, Fair Isle history and setting good Fair Isle knitting habits. We’ll put these techniques into practice while working up The Curious Crafter workshop-debuting cowl pattern inspired by Harry Potter.
