Color, Tips & Techniques
This class combines intarsia and Fair Isle to produce patterns that change color both vertically and horizontally. We will learn what makes a motif successful using this hybrid technique, and then knit a small sampler using either a motif that’s provided or one of your very own. At the end of the adventure, you’ll leave the class with a souvenir swatch that will serve as inspiration for future projects.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; chart reading; easy colorwork
Supplies to Bring:
4 to 8 skeins (partial skeins are fine) of different colors of yarn—at least one neutral, all worsted weight; circular knitting needles appropriate for the yarn you have selected (I like to have a variety of needles with me when creating a new design); stitch markers; pencil; stick ruler; measuring tape; calculator; sticky notes or magnetic board to keep your place on the chart; and the usual knitting bag filled with supplies.
Materials Fee (to Be Paid Directly to the Teacher):
