Beyond Stripes: A Multitude of Ways to Add Color to Your Knitting (Part 1 of 2)
Friday, September 21, 2018
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In this class, students will learn the basics of stranded color work, including reading charts and properly blocking your work. In class, students will make a sampler illustrating many regional styles of colorwork: Fair Isle, Selbu, Setesdal, and even Bohus knitting. Less familiar techniques like embroidery, intarsia, and roositud will also be covered. We’ll also cover two-handed color work, tacking long floats, proper tension, and choosing colors for optimal effect. Students will be provided with worsted-weight yarn in a range of gorgeous colors from Kelbourne Woolens.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; have knit a few accessories; easy colorwork
Supplies for Class:
Please bring double pointed needles in size 7 US (or whatever needle you are comfortable working in worsted weight yarn).
