Sarah Hatton, who is running an inspiring knitting course at The Watermill this May/June has just sent us these lovely new pictures of the lace scarf, one of the two projects she has specially designed for you to make during your week here.

Sarah says: This project will help you understand how eyelet lace is formed; we will also cover short row shaping, beading and knitted on edges.

“You will then design your own small lace pattern before knitting a shawl or scarf. There are three shape options as shown above and you can either select from charted lace patterns or include your own lace pattern.”

Hatton cable projectYou’ll also be working with Sarah on another specially designed project on cables. Sarah says: “If you have always wanted to tackle the classic Aran sweater but were terrified to start this project aims to ease your way into working cables.

Note: All the yarn for these projects will be provided free of charge. You just bring your knitting needles: 4.5mm, 5mm and 6mm, and 6mm cable needle.

Sarah Hatton is a designer for the Rowan Yarns and also teaches knitting classes worldwide. She learnt to knit as a child and has always been passionate about fashion. After gaining a degree in fashion design she began working in the handknit industry and has done so for over 15 years.

Sarah is also an enthusiastic, sympathetic and inspirational tutor. As well as the specially designed cable and lace projects, she will also pass on professional tips and techniques to take your knits from ‘homemade’ to ‘handmade’.

Sarah’s first week with us in May is completely booked out, but we have places on her second week from Saturday 28 May to Saturday 4 June:
