Julia Farwell-Clay
Class Details:
Using an exclusive-to-class pattern, students will practice knitting in the round with two colors at once with double pointed needles, and follow a chart. Whether one or all of these skills is something new, this is a chance to give it a try and tackle problems common to stranded projects. As part of class discussion, we’ll talk about speed swatches, cover size adjustments with charted knitting, and review basic color theory as it relates to Fair Isle projects. Students will leave class with a good start on a pair of beautiful Fair Isle Mitts. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; have knit a few accessories; easy colorwork
Supplies for Class:
Set of double pointed needles in sizes 2, 3, and 4 to work Jamieson’s Spindrift (fingering weight) at a gauge somewhere near 6 to 6.5 stitches to the inch.
