For me a design is never finished when it is knitted and fitted. To me that is when the real fun begins!
I love to crochet, embroider and decorate on my knitwear and make each garment unique and special.
Many people believe my models are very complicated to knit. But in fact they are easier to make than most people think. I often say that if you know a few of the most simple embroidery stiches and have a little patience, with a little effort you can make your knitting look like “a million dollar”.
In this workshop I will teach the different stitches I use and how to use them on your knitting. I will show how to get motifs with simple stranded two-color knitting to appear advanced and colorful with high WOW effect.
Participants will in good time receive an email with instructions how to knit swatches that we will work on during the workshop.
- Yarns of different colors in the same thickness as yarn in the swatches.
- The best thing is to use yarn in medium thickness, from approx. 18 to 28 stiches on 10 cm. Use quite smooth yarn for this. Very hairy yarn is not very appropriate.
- A little thicker needle with rounded tip to embroider on wool.
- Knitted swatches – the participants will in good time receive an email with explanations for the swatches.
