Class Details:

Have you ever been intrigued by the idea of two colour knitting with two right sides and no floats? We will begin with tubes within tubes, worked in the round with a single yarn, two yarns and then with colour patterning. We will look at different ways to handle the yarns for maximum efficiency and how to incorporate shapings into double fabrics. This succulent fabric is wonderfully suited to hats mittens and cozy lined socks.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, increase/decrease, working in the round

Homework:

With one of your smooth DK- through worsted-weight yarn colors, cast on 48 sts, join in the round, and work 4 rounds of 1x1 rib (k1, p1). Use whatever type of needle configuration you prefer. Leave the stitches on the needle and cut the yarn.

Supplies for Class:

20g each of two contrasting, solid colours of smooth DK - Worsted weight yarn.

A set of double-pointed needles (or one or two circulars according to your preferred method of working in the round) of size appropriate to your yarn (US 3 - 7 / 3.5 - 4.5 mm).
