Marlisle Selbbob Hat with Anna Maltz


Anna is back! 

In this class, we will swatch for a Selbbob Hat, a pattern from Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting, so that you can continue in confidence, having understood the construction and a good number of transferable skills. We will tackle wily corrugated rib and how to form a perfect bobble — with the option of knitting backwards! This class is also an introduction to the unusual, yet simple, technique of Marlisle.

Skills covered: Basic Marlisle using two colours of yarn (with one as a feature colour) | casting on and off for corrugated rib | avoiding the pitfalls of corrugated rib with tension and needle size | approaches to changing between colours | colour placement | swatching in the round | forming a perfect bobble | successful combining of yarns | knitting backwards

Existing knowledge required: Suitable for knitters who have experience knitting stranded colourwork in the round.

Anna Maltz is a Londoner and ex art school kid. A lot of her work involves knitting. She likes people watching, even if they aren’t wearing knitwear. As cofounder of Ricefield Collective, she does a chunk of the teaching and designing, something she also does for others of all ages. A lifelong knitter from a line of creative folks, her love of colour means you probably won’t miss her in a crowd.

Needle type note: You can use either circular needles long enough for magic looping or DPNs in each size, or use 40cm/16” length circular needles for the Brim and 60cm/24” for the Body AND a pair of DPNs or magic loop in the larger size to finish. For the class, use whichever you are most familiar with, as there won’t be enough time to learn DPNs or magic-loop, if you are unfamiliar with them as techniques.

Using needles with nice pointy tips (often called lace needles) will make the cast-offs required to form each bobble a lot easier.
