Knitting with Colour - Fairisle and Intarsia

Sorry, this workshop isn't currently scheduled!


This workshop will show you the two different techniques of knitting with colour, which are ‘fairisle’ and ‘intarsia’.

It will give the participant a chance to try a few variations of pattern to practice, as they work the techniques of colour knitting.

Both written patterns and charted patterns are included in the workshop, which will give the participant the experience of following both ways a colour pattern can be written.

The workshop gives people a chance to learn tips and techniques when working with different colours to ensure they get the desired finish.


You will need to bring the following:

  • a pair of 4 mm needles
  • 1 x ball of Dk yarn, plus half a ball of Dk yarn in a contrasting or complementing colour. These are to use on the day of the workshop

You will also need to bring or purchase a packed lunch. We will provide refreshments (plenty of cake!) throughout the day.


Your tutor for this class will be Sara Thornett. Sara has a Masters degree in Fashion and Knitwear. She is a published designer with patterns in books and online. Sara is a very experienced tutor and works nationwide as part of the Rowan Workshop Team.
