Improvers Knitting Series: Lesson 4: Slip Stitch Colourwork

A series of workshops to help you with the next steps in knitting

About this experience

This is the fourth session of our Improvers Knitting series which is aimed at beginner knitters (who have already started knitting the basics) or those wishing to return to knitting or anyone who wants to expand their knitting repertoire.

We will focus on knitting the Slip Stitch colour knitting technique to create a two colour patterned sampler square which can be used towards making a cushion or blanket.  We will look at how to work slip stitch patterns, how to read written and charted colourwork patterns and how to achieve correct pattern tension.

Different techniques will be looked at across the improver’s sessions and the different sampler squares knitted can then be collated to make a cushion cover or, if multiple squares are made, a blanket.
