Stranded Colourwork, commonly call Fair Isle Knitting is a beautiful colourwork knitting technique which features 2 or more colours being worked in a single row, with the unused colours being carried on the wrong side of the fabric. In this class we will learn how to introduce a second colour to our knitting, work them both in the same round to create intricate patterns, and how to carry the yarn behind out work to make nice even "floats".
Before the class date you will receive a pattern with instructions to cast on and knit the brim of a hat, that way we can get right down to learning how to do colourwork when class starts.
Learning Outcomes: after this class you will feel confident taking on stranded colourwork projects with a main colour and single contrast colour.
Required Skills: confident working in the round on 16" circular needles,
Required Materials: 50g of dk weight yarn (main colour), 50g of dk weight yarn (contrast colour), 3.5mm 16" circular needles for cast on and brim, 4.5mm 16" circular needles, 4.5mm dpns for crown.
These materials are *NOT* included with the price of the class and must be purchased separately before the class starts. I am happy to give guidance on materials.
