First pictures of Sarah’s Watermill knitting projects

Hatton lace projectThe Watermill’s inspiring new knitting tutor Sarah Hatton has just sent us pictures about the two projects she has specially designed for you to make during your week-long knitting holiday here next May. There’s a lovely, soft lace scarf (The lace image above is an ‘inspiration’ shot  and you will be making your lace scarf using the beautiful Rowan Fine Art yarn) and the second project is an Aran cable classic  project (below).

The lace project will help you understand how eyelet lace is formed; Sarah will also cover short row shaping, beading and knitted on edges. And, if you have always wanted to tackle the classic Aran sweater but were terrified to start the second 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. You will only need to bring 3.25mm needles, pencil, eraser and reading glasses if needed.

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. She is also an enthusiastic, sympathetic and inspirational tutor and as well as helping you to make those two great projects, Sarah will also pass on professional tips and techniques to take your knits from ‘homemade’ to ‘handmade’.
