Knitting Workshops with Steven Be

May 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

R150

13 May 2017

Steven Be will present two workshops at Yarn in a Barn, on the 13th of May.

09h00 – 12h00
Ponchini 101

The ponchini is the new shawl–a versatile garment with so many design possibilities. This is your chance to cast on a ponchini with the help of the Ponchini Master himself.

Experience the magic of mixology, taking a variety of yarns from different brands, weights, and fiber contents to create a magical and unique ponchini. Use one of the patterns from Ponchini Vol. 1 and learn the structure, seaming, and wearability of the ponchini. Steven will teach you his favorite tips and tricks as he guides you through your first ponchini.

You have to bring the following:

  • One of Steven’s ponchini patterns – BUY A PATTERN ONLINE PRIOR TO THE CLASS.
  • Minimum 3 yarns to work with; we love to experiment with finer weights like lace and fingering and fiber contents like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight. Yarns should be chosen and wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class. Choose a color palette when bringing your stash to make it cohesive.
  • A variety of needle sizes will be needed so bring a good selection (we recommend an interchangeable set)

12h00 – 13h00
Cheese and wine lunch

13h00 – 16h00
Shawls, Scarves, and Scharves: Wrap Yourself in Creativity

Broaden your knitting horizons and change your life with StevenBe. This workshop is designed to be an amazing opportunity to have fun while learning Steven’s best tips and tricks. It will set you free from patterns as written and help you feel comfortable making your own modifications and design decisions. Remember: a pattern is only a guideline!

Start with a base pattern from StevenBe and learn different methods of creating angles and edges, modifying the shape with modular knitting, adding new colors, and combining fibers in unique ways to customize the pattern and truly make it yours. Learn to super-size smaller knits and play with a variety of yarn weights to create your own custom colors and textures.

You have to bring the following:

  • Pen, paper, and scissors
  • Base pattern of your choice from the StevenBe repertoire (recommended patterns are Silk N Scribbles, Eyelet Ponchini, Scharf, Shawlvest) – BUY A PATTERN ONLINE PRIOR TO THE CLASS.
  • Minimum 3 yarns to work with, we love to experiment with finer weights like lace and fingering and fiber contents like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight. Yarns should be chosen and wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class. Choose a color palette when bringing your stash to make it cohesive.
  • A variety of needle sizes will be needed so bring a good selection. We highly recommend an interchangeable needle set for this class
  • A notebook and pen or pencil for taking copious notes

You can have the entire day with Steven Be, two workshops and a cheese and wine lunch, all for R150 only. How amazing is that!

You don’t need to buy his book, although I think it would be worth it. But you will have to buy one of his pattern for each of the classes.

Book your place, we can only accommodate 22 people.

  1. I live in Cape Town and can’t attend the Ponchini workshop but would love to purchase the Ponchini Vol 1. I can’t find it on your webpage.

    1. I don’t stock any books. You will have to order it from his website.

  2. Dear Yarn in a Barn,

    I have booked for the Stephen B workshops. However, I can’t find the recommended “Scharf” or “Shawlvest” patterns on his website. Coiuld you please assist with these for the afternoon session?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Louise
      You can use any of his ponchini patterns for the morning session and any scarf / cowl for the afternoon session. Please note that the R150 includes both workshops and the lunch. xx
