In the workshop, students will use this traditional skill to produce a Fair Isle bookmark and should go home with a finished/almost finished piece. The bookmark is knitted in the round and then cut to make a flat piece of work so knitters have the opportunity to overcome the fear of cutting their knitting, and learn how to finish a cut piece.
Skills Required: The ability to knit. Ideally experience of knitting in the round.
Materials Required: 3 or 4 x 3mm 20cm dpns, or one or two x 3mm circular needles for magic loop
