Ideal for newer knitters, or those who have struggled with colourwork, this class is focused on approachable and practical guidance on working with more than one yarn at a time. We’ll talk about how to handle the two yarns without getting tangled (and why this matters!), whether you work English or Continental, one-handed or two. We’ll discuss reading the patterns and charts. Along the way, we’ll cover tips for choosing and managing yarns, and the importance of blocking – and how to do it.
•2 contrasting colors of medium-weight (worsted or DK) yarn
• US 6-8 needles
Prerequisites: Knitters need to be proficient with knits and purls.
