Introduction to 3D knitwear (Moko-Moko cowl) – a virtual workshop with Olga Buraya-Kefelian
Cost does not include supplies. Please refer to supply list below and be sure to purchase your materials along with the workshop registration.
1 three hour virtual zoom session
This class combines demonstration about 3D knitwear in hand knitting with practical instruction to create an accessory — and all of the inspiration! Olga will present her 3D design philosophy to reveal a slightly different angle of knitwear and put your existing knitting skills into a novel path, all while creating one of her 3D textured designs – the Moko-Moko Cowl. You will learn not just how to make this cowl but also how to adapt it, customize it, and shape it to your liking. For the duration of this project you will hone your skills of modular style knitting, and will also learn and practice knitting backwards using either Continental or English (throwing) style.
