She is world-renowned for this inventive, top-down sweater technique that creates beautifully-fitting sweaters for all sizes of personswith elegant touches to pockets, sleeve cuffs and necklines.
Instructor: Kristy Rinas
Must purchase from The Artful Yarn: Ziggurats book arriving late August and all other workshop materials.
From her book:
Let Åsa Tricosa introduce you to the art of knitting beautiful top-down sweaters, using her innovative ‘Ziggurat’ technique. Skillfully designed to minimize cutting and joining of skeins, and to maximize flowing and seamless knitting, the Ziggurat method is clever, addictive and produces well-fitting, well-finished sweaters.
The book is written for both experienced and novice knitters, and for those new to sweater knitting. The comprehensive and elegant patterns will guide you, step-by-step, through the basics of Ziggurating. You can choose to follow the patterns as written, to master the techniques and gain confidence. Or you can use Åsa’s extensive detailed tutorials, and customise the patterns to suit yourself – adapt the neckline, add pockets, tucks, or lined hems and cuffs to create truly unique knits.
