Whether you’re working your first stranded colorwork project or embarking on a new Fair Isle challenge, getting even tension is the most difficult colorwork skill most knitters face. In this class, master two-handed stranding with an expert in Latvian colorwork who loves making new colorwork fans! We will discuss choosing needles, yarns, charts, and colors with a focus on improving tension. Learn about dominance and how this impacts the finished appearance; mixing stranded colorwork with knitting with a single strand, e.g., a sweater knit with a single strand with a colorwork yoke; and knitting colorwork on dpns versus magic loop. You will have an opportunity to knit with multiple colors to gain an understanding of how to best choose the colors most suitable for your colorwork projects.
