I’ll be teaching the Monomoy Cowl in my Introduction to Stranded Color Work Class at Bo Peep in Ligonier on February 21st at 10 am.
Hope you can join us…
Stranded Color Work looks so difficult and complex, but once you learn a few simple tips and tricks you will be playing with color and yarn in a whole new way. In this class you will learn a Provisional Cast On, knitting while holding the yarn in each hand, weaving in the carried yarn, yarn dominance, how to tension your yarn for even stitches, speed swatching and blocking. There will also be a discussion of various color work techniques. Once you have mastered the techniques in this cowl you can move on to more difficult color work projects, perhaps even a sweater!!!
