About

INTRODUCTION TO MARLISLE with ANNA MALTZ
Marlisle (combining marl and colourwork, aka fairisle) is an unusual technique for creating decorative texture and colour shifts with a particular focus on seamless knitting in the round. Marlisle allows patches of stranded colourwork to be scattered around a project without the use of intarsia while avoiding unworkably long floats. It can be used to combine different weights of yarn, throw new light on your stash, overcome frustrations like jogging stripes and can even be used to adapt existing patterns. It’s a fun way to change how you look at knitting.
As an entry point into understanding this novel approach, you’ll create a circular swatch from a choice of designs provided. The aim of this workshop is to send you off inspired.
Skills covered:
• following a Marlisle stitch pattern from a chart
• working a swatch in the round, including basic knotted steek
• combining colours
• deducing tension
Skills and experience
Intermediate/advanced beginner
You must have experience of colourwork and be confident knitting in the round. This workshop is not suitable for beginners.
Materials
You will need to bring along 3.25mm DPN’s or circular needles long enough for magic loop
All other materials will be provided
There is a small homework task that will be sent to participants in May
