Interweave Escapes is a unique way for knitters to come together, learn from a knitting expert and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow devotees in this intimate, retreat-style event.

On October 15-18, 2017 Interweave Escapes is traveling to lovely Woodstock, Vermont to enjoy a exclusive and rare opportunity: We will be staying at the stunning Woodstock Inn & Resort for a one-of-a kind, all inclusive knitting getaway. There will be two knitting workshops, one from Arne & Carlos and one from Lars Rains, delicious gourmet meals, plus a special presentation and book signing with Arne & Carlos. Join us for an amazing weekend amid the natural beauty of Woodstock, Vermont, October 15-18, 2017.

Take two three-hour knitting workshops including:

  • Arne and Carlos are offering 2 class options!
    • Option #1: Knitted Birds: We all deserve a flock of our own! Learn to knit a covey of feathered friends in this introductory class exploring the basic tenets of the knitted bird, a charming, quiet, and extraordinarily clean species comfortable in all manner of domesticated scenarios. Scandinavian design superstars Arne & Carlos provide expert guidance for intermediate and advanced knitters with an interest in hatching their own handmade avian companions. You’ll learn the fundamental steps from beak to feet to tail, leaving you well prepared to spread your wings and explore the possibilities all on your own. In addition, Arne & Carlos will teach you how to knit and purl the Norwegian (Continental) way. Plus, they’ll share their tips for the easiest method of tensioning yarn correctly to get even stitches and perfect gauge, whether knitting or purling. And you’ll learn how to read a chart, so you don’t have to rely on the written pattern! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn the art of the knitted bird, as well as essential knitting techniques, from the very best in the business.
    • Option #2: Wrist Warmers with Selbu Pattern (traditional Norwegian pattern)
      Using double-pointed needles can seem intimidating to beginning knitters, but authors Arne & Carlos will soothe those fears. Wrist Warmers make excellent and quick gifts for young and old alike! And a project like this is a great way to practice your stranded knitting in the round! No matter what the season or the outfit, keep your hands covered in high style!
  • Design Your Own Iceandic Sweater with Lars Rains: In this workshop, we will examine the various components of a bottom-up, seamless yoke sweater. After we have recorded the body measurements required for this type of garment, we will work through all of the steps (and the math!) needed for you to leave with a personalized pattern that you can take home to create your own Icelandic lopapeysa. An assortment of yoke patterns and motif bands will be provided for you to incorporate into your design. Questions pertaining to designing yoke patterns and top-down construction methods will be considered as time permits.
