Join renowned designer and best-selling author Shirley Paden as she explores color knitting in two classes – Intarsia and Stranded Color Knitting. Take one class or both and master the techniques used to “paint” your knitting canvas with colorwork.
The secret behind knitting the beautiful designs in stranded colorwork is in the stranding. Using two colors in a row, but only one at a time, the knitter is able to create designs, or motifs, in the knitted fabric. Students practice the stranding-and-weaving technique working across both RS and WS rows while knitting with both hands, and carrying a different color of yarn in each hand.
**Basic knitting skills. Some experience following written patterns and working with pattern charts and working different stitch patterns.**
