Beyond Stripes: A Multitude of Ways to Add Color to Your Knitting
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 The Fibre Co.
