Ready to do some of those fabulous colorwork patterns you're seeing on Ravelry? Join Megan for this introduction to stranded colorwork knitting!
This is a great class for experienced or new colorwork
knitters, but a strong foundation in basic
knitting is required.
You will learn how to carry your yarn appropriately, the best way to catch floats, how to manage your yarn so it doesn't get all twisted, and color dominance (it's not color theory!)Some advice on color choice:
Make sure your colors contrast well! It's awful to go through all the work and not be able to see it well!Choose any pattern from Mina's new book
! Megan will have some recommendations for you as class gets closer. If the price of the book is a barrier (as individual patterns cannot be purchased from it at this time), Megan can provide some individual pattern options that would also be suitable. However, the book is truly one you can use again and again - and would serve you well!
Yarn will depend upon your choice in pattern - however a worsted or dk weight pattern is strongly recommended!
Needle size will depend upon the pattern chosen.
Please note: This is a virtual class only! It will be accessible through your phone, tablet, or computer. A microphone is required, and a webcam is strongly encouraged. Zoom Information will be provided after registration and yarn purchase for class. Please let associate know you are purchasing yarn for class to receive your 10% discount on yarn.
