Fair Isle Buggiflooer Beanie Workshop
Joining in on the 2023 Shetland Wool Week activities and knitting the Buggiflooer Beanie!
The official 2023 Shetland Wool Week knitting pattern the ‘Buggiflooer Beanie’ designed by festival patron Alison Rendall has been announced! In this 90-minute workshop, we'll introduce you to fair isle knitting. This pattern has a beginner-friendly two-color option but can keep even the most advanced knitters interested with its six-color hat option.
Our goal is to have you leave with the confidence to tackle your own fair isle project, and if you need additional project support, you can always come back again for Quick Help or in a Bring Your Own Project class.
