Would you like a look at the course content:
"Don’t you love when Carol Feller proves you wrong? I loved this sweater when I first got a glimpse of it on Carol’s Instagram, but I wasn’t sure I could knit it. I was positive I couldn’t finish the body in two weeks, and even though I knew I could take all of the time I needed, I really wanted to stay on track and possibly win a pattern. Even with a few setbacks (thank you, lifelines) I finished Clue #2. Carol, thanks for making the impossible, possible."

Meet Your Teacher
Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit.
She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.
Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.

Would you like a yarn kit?
Yarn kits are available for all of our project workshops. You can find the exact colour that Carol chose herself or choose from the colour combinations provided.
Iasciare is knit with two yarns held together; Blasta Light and Manos Cabrito. Blasta light is a single ply, woollen spun yarn that is woolly, lofty and delicate. Cabrito is a brushed mohair laceweight that creates a fluffy halo and strength.
