Pattern Design on the Knitting Machine – TBC

Pattern design on the knitting machine with Ria Burns

Learn how to design your own colourful and textured patterns for machine knitting using punchcards. After looking at a variety of ways that this analogue technology can be used, we will get creative with colour and pattern with a collage and drawing session, then use graph paper to plot out some designs into a repeat pattern.

In the afternoon we will punch your chosen pattern onto punchcards and get knitting, making plenty of swatches and a snood or scarf with your own design.

A basic knowledge of using knitting machines is required for this workshop. We will be using Brother knitting machines, all equipment and yarns are provided.
