Moebius

– the correct one and stitches which are pleasing for this.

(workshop in english)

  When you knit a Moebius in one continuous row of stitches, you then have beautiful patterns emerging naturally and symmetrically with very little effort or attention on your part. Choosing to use more than one colour and choosing the correct stitch design which creates a two-faced design just enhances the natural flow and symmetry which emerges.

  Since you have only one edge to finish, you’ll never have a cast-off side tighter than the cast-on, and you’ll never see your cast-on at all, because it’s swallowed up in the design of the scarf.

  But most of all, and this is hard to explain, there is a simple utter joy allowing the true Moebius to emerge and do all the work for you. You’ll have to find this out for yourself, by learning to prepare and cast on your moebius learning to calculate the correct number of stitches to the ply you have chosen to use and the length and number of wraps your moebius cowl / scarf will have.

  We will cover 3 differing cast on methods in this class and look at many differing stitch designs.

  Materials  

  •   Yarn of your choice in any ply
  •   Needles : size to suit your yarn choice  but they must be Circular with a length of 47″ to 60″.

From 2011-2016 Chrissie has taught knitting and felting in Fanø (DK), Belgium, Norway and on a ‘Craft Cruise’ through the Baltic. UK teaching venues include the inaugural Loch Ness International Knitting Festival, the annual Harrogate Yorkshire Knitting and Stitching Show, World of Wool, and private students in her studio.

2017 is booking fast with Chrissie teaching more in the UK at her studio, once more at the Strikkefestival in Fanø and at Inverness Loch Ness. Her studio is now at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh, Cumbria where she can be found at least a couple of days each week.

In Chrissie‘s own words – I cannot remember a time before fibre, a time when yarn did not feature in my life. My inspiration is always nature and certain architecture that grasps my attention as I travel, whether it be the prize-winning airport in Madrid, a peeling painted door in Greece, or simple leaves and flowers from my gardens, which are always inspirational to me in every season, even rain on stone. The Pennines inspire me with their awe and majesty and now feature in many designs. I have also been studying the works of Sonia Delauney which intrigue me with their colour and shape placement.

Chrissie’s published titles are stocked in many countries, and her designs are regularly featured in the monthly journals. She has designed for Cygnet Yarns (UK), BC Garn (DK), Ramsdens (UK) and Saleutions (AU). A new range of baby wear – Itsy Ditsy – is in progress featuring a mix of knitting and fine lawn cottons and silks.
