Colors That Climb—A Primer in Vertically Stranded Colorwork
Friday, September 21, 2018
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Add a new coloring tool to your knitting paintbox. Adding contrasting color that climbs from row to row allows you to enhance existing garments and stitch patterns without affecting gauge nor inhibiting the elasticity of the fabric. We’ll learn how to manage the yarn, how to address the contrasting color stitches to incorporate them into the fabric easily (it’s not like intarsia), and how to apply the technique to a variety of fabrics. Previously taught at recent Vogue Knitting LIVE events as three separate classes—garter, lace, and cables—this three-hour version will give you the tools you need to explore confidently on your own.
