We will do a recap of the skills covered in workshop 1, we will explore decorative stitches, look at more complex projects, and progress according to the wishes of the students. You should preferably have attended workshop 1, or have some experience of twined knitting.Please bring your own needles between 3-6mm (sock needles, or 1 very long circular needle, or two circular needles of the same thickness) and two balls of not too precious yarn in contrasting colours.
