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!
The pattern is: Moonwake cowl by Andrea Mowry
Worsted weight yarn in 4 contrasting colors
50 g/125 yds/117 m of each color
All but 7 grams of each color were used, you may want to have extra yarn available in case of gauge discrepancies so you don’t run short.
Size US 7/4.5 mm (16”/40 cm circular needle, recommended) - A second needle of the same size will be needed to finish the cowl.
(Use the needle size you need to achieve gauge.)
Waste yarn, stitch marker (1), tapestry needle and a row counter is recommended. Crochet hook for Provisional Cast On (Size E, F, or G is recommended)
