Tips & Techniques
Come experience the colorful world of Westknits and learn all about Stephen’s marled tricks for combining multiple yarns. We will begin by experimenting with holding two strands of yarn together to create fabrics that look like painted works of art. Then, there will be time in the last hour of class to start one of Stephen’s patterns that uses the marled technique. Bring the pattern and yarns to cast on and get started with your project!
Recommended projects from Ravelry:
Marled Magic Shawl or Sweater
Marled Fade Triangle
Westknits Go-To Raglan
Amazing Technicolor Dream Sweater
or any other Westknits pattern you wish to marl
Supplies for Class:
Bring a palette of at least 8–12 colors of yarn to play and experiment with and a few needle sizes (US 8/5mm recommended). Fingering-weight wool and leftover bits of yarn are recommended. Some mohair/silk yarn or other fiber textures are highly recommended to explore fuzzy fades and marls. Bring yarn and pattern to start your new Westknits project and have Stephen help pick out your colors.
