Do you love plaid but believe it is a woven fabric? Are you intrigued by a tartan due to its family connection or its beauty? This class will give you the tools to both knit and design your own tartans – Scottish or not. Taught in a workbook format, instruction is based upon an antique technique discovered by Franklin Habit.
There are three components to Knitting Tartans and Plaids. There is a brief discussion of Scot Tartan history followed by an introduction to Clan Setts. Students will learn to read the sett, a tartan weaving pattern, as a knitting pattern. Reference material of more than 132 traditional plaid setts will be available for students to explore a tartan of interest.
Once students understand the construction of a knitted tartan, the class will learn to knit a Clan MacLeod Inspired Cowl. Cowl pattern will be provided with the workbook.
