Knit a Colourwork Cowl
Stranded colourwork is all the rage, and for good reason! There are so many beautiful patterns out there. This is a super popular workshop at Tribe and it always produces brilliant results.
Avoid the pitfalls involved with colourwork and pick up the best tips from our lovely instructor. This cowl makes the perfect learning project with its size (not too small and fiddly, not to large and slow), combination of patterns for float length and the beautiful wearable addition to your wardrobe.
In this workshop, you will learn the following:
- How to knit stranded colourwork
- How to manage your floats and tension
- How to read charts
- What colour dominance is and why it matters
For knitters who are confident knitting, purling and knitting in the round on circular needles. Please read the Pre-Class info.
3 hours, starting 10am sharp. If you can't come in to choose your yarn on a day before Class Day, please arrive 20 mins before class time to choose your yarn, or bring your own (see details below).
If you're late, you'll have to catch up as best you can without disrupting the other attendees.
For knitters who are confident knitting, purling and knitting in the round on circular needles.
You will need 3 x 110m of yarn, ideally Fingering/Sport weight (in 3 colours).
It is recommended that you use a non-superwash yarn, or a "sticky" yarn for the best result. The example in the photo has been knit with Pip Colourwork. This cowl would also be amazing in Andorra, Jacob 4-Ply, Le Petit Lambswool or E+2 (with leftovers for matching wrist cuffs!).
You will also need circular knitting needles and stitch markers. You can buy supplies at the shop beforehand but you must arrive early to do this.
You will begin your cowl at home and complete the rib section before class so you can move straight on to colourwork! Pattern details will be emailed to you.
We are sorry but we cannot offer refunds on classes if you are unable to attend for whatever reason, unless we are able to refill your spot.
The class will take place upstairs with access via a Spiral Staircase.
We require a minimum of 3 participants to run this course. If the numbers aren't reached and we have to cancel, we will let you know.
My name is Nuria and I'm from Barcelona. Almost 13 years ago I married my lovely Aussie boy and we've managed to have 2 gorgeous kids together, My little Aussie man and 12 years old Aiden and my gorgeous and very determined little english lady Ari who is 8!
Six years ago we embraced a big adventure and moved to London from Barcelona. And here we are, three years later, happy and loving this little adorable place that is Kew (Richmond) where we live.
So, now that I can definitely say that my family is all settled, it's time for me to start my own big adventure and share my little creation:Yaya Knits & Bobs
Yayaknits is about sharing and teaching people to knit and crochet, along with the opportunity to purchase hand-made knit and crochet products that I can design for you or we can design together.
The inspiration for Yayaknits comes mainly from my grandmother Carmen who we would call Yaya. She was an amazing, brave and inspiring woman who taught me as a little girl all the knitting and crochet skills she was passionate about. I would like to share this passion to all that want to learn.
