The color-stranded knitting method is constantly reinterpreted by knitters around the world from classic Fair Isle jumpers to intricate sockings from Estonia to sturdy Norwegian pullovers. These surprisingly different knitting traditions provide us with many different techniques, construction methods, and fabrics. For this workshop, two types of kits in several colors will be available: worsted-weight yarn with a simple chart and fingering-weight yarn and a more challenging pattern. Starting with knitted swatches, we will discuss holding yarns, changing colors, reading charts, and much more. You’ll leave with information about your personal stranded-knitting gauge, a completed swatch, the beginning of a project, and an easy way to keep track of samples.
Participants need to bring: Circular needles in 16″ US 7 and 8 OR double pointed needle sets (5 needles) in US #1, 2, and 3; stitch markers, scissors, and any other needle notions you typically use.
