A modular multicolored intarsia sweater modeled in magazine ads and red carpets around the world by actor Eddie Redmayne seized the attention of the knitting world last fall. In this class, we will explore the secrets of that sweater and the lessons it holds for your own knitting. We’ll play with the modular short row shell unit that is the core of the design, and from there we will use the shell as the foundation for a sample project hat. From there, the sky is the limit. There will be short rows, a quick intro to backwards knitting for the brave, and ends to weave in.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; easy colorwork; short rows; able to use gauge to predict dimension of finished project
Supplies for Class:
Worsted or Bulky yarn in a few colors (the more the merrier), and appropriate needles for a stockinette fabric you like with your yarn, measuring tape, stitch markers, paper, and pen.
