New to stranded knitting or want to improve your technique? We’ll learn about the different ways you can do stranded colorwork: one-handed, two-handed, or with stranding guides worn on the fingers. We’ll also talk about color dominance, tension, fixing mistakes, and other handy tips. We’ll begin knitting up a small satchel in class to practice stranding.

What to bring

Fingering weight or sport weight yarn in at least two contrasting colors, needles in two sizes (smallest size appropriate for yarn weight, and one or two sizes larger) for preferred method of working small circumferences in the round (DPNs, magic loop, two circulars).

Material provided:

Satchel pattern and handout with colorwork tips

Students should be able to knit in the round. Students will also need to complete the ribbing portion of their satchel before coming to the workshop. (With smaller needles, cast on 40 stitches and join to work in the round. Work 2x2 ribbing for 2 inches.)
