Color, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
Launch into two-color knitting (Fair Isle, Norwegian, and Armenian) with an arsenal of tips for knitting with two colors (traditionally one color in each hand). It truly is much easier than it looks. We’ll do stranded knitting and avoid puckers and tangles and purls (oh my!). Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round
Using your darker color, cast on 108 sts. Join into a circle, being careful not to twist the stitches over the needle. Work about 8 rounds in ribbing (1x1 or 2x2). Next Round: *K9, m1* repeat around (120 sts). Stop and bring this to class, along with a second color of the same weight yarn.
Supplies for Class:
Two balls of fingering- or sport-weight yarn in a light and a dark and circular needles (one 16" or two 24") in size appropriate for your yarn; 1 stitch marker.
