Color, World Traditions
What makes Scandinavian colorwork different from other world traditions? We will explore color choices and the classic motifs used in Scandinavian stranded knitting. Learn techniques for tacking down extra-long floats found in many motifs. We will learn the Norwegian purl and a way of executing garter stitch in the round. Explore ideas for combining motifs and adding colorwork to liven up your future projects. We will begin our exploration by starting a headband or hat.
