INTARSIA DIAMOND CUSHION WORKSHOP
Come and join Marie at the beautiful Brooksby Hall in Leicestershire to learn to create this lovely intarsia diamond cushion. The design is made up of geometric triangles, perfect for learning intarsia knitting. Marie will show you how to knit intarsia, which is a great technique of introducing lots of colours in a row without having to strand. Although this design looks complicated it is knitted using stocking stitch and therefore achievable by the novice knitter.
DATES Saturday 15th April 2017.
TIME 10am until 4pm. We will start promptly so please arrive by 9.45am.
LOCATION Brooksby Hall, Brooksby, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire LE14 2LJ.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN You will learn intarsia knitting by completing a test swatch before starting the actual cushion.
SKILL LEVEL Suitable for knitters of any level of experience and as this project uses stocking stitch it suitable for the novice knitter.
WHAT YOU WILL BE GIVEN The pattern, charts and the yarn to complete the cushion. A lunch made from locally sourced produce, lots of tea & coffee, fruit juice, biscuits and afternoon cake.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING 3.25mm straight or circular needles.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE THE CUSHION You will need a 50cm x 50cm machine washable cushion pad and a piece of 50cm x 50cm backing fabric.
