Instructor: Julia Lowther

 Achieve the lightweight effects of lace in metal by using the hollow knit technique. You will learn how to knit fine gauge wire using a pegged spool and a steel crochet hook. Julia will teach you how to create a variety of pegged spool looms from wood and metal, that will give you different knitted effects. We recommend that students practice with copper, before moving on to fine silver or gold. Finishing options include filling your hollow knit tube with pearls or beads, adding both color and structure. Once you've made your spools, you can take your hollow knitting with you anywhere!
