Introduction to Stranded Colorwork: 2 Mondays (11/29, 12/6), 5:30-7:00pm
Introduction to Stranded Colorwork
Instructor: Cassie LaFollette
Dates: Two Mondays, November 29 & December 6, 5:30 - 7:00pm
Learn to knit stranded colorwork by making a Banff hat by Tin Can Knits! The fun tree pattern on this hat is an example of what a great designer can do with just two colors. In this class, you will learn multiple ways to manage two colors in the rounds so you can find the method that works best for you. We will also cover yarn dominance, managing floats, and reading a colorwork chart.
The Banff pattern includes sizes baby through adult, and you can make any size you like as long as you have time to complete the knitting over the span of two class sessions.
Skill Level: Easy/Intermediate. To be successful in this class, you must know how to knit and purl & knit a small circumference in the round (using the method of your choice).
Supplies to bring to class:
(registered students receive 10% off class supply purchases, excluding patterns)
- Copy of Banff Hat Pattern, which can be purchased in the shop, on the Tin Can Knits website, or on Ravelry
- Needles: US #6 / 4.0 mm 16” circular needle, US #8 / 5.0 mm 16” circular needle, and US #8 / 5.0 mm needles for working small circumferences in the round (double-pointed needles or long circulars for magic loop).
- Yarn: Worsted-weight, 100% wool yarn in two contrasting colors. For the largest hat size, you will need 140 yards of your main color and 50 yards of the contrasting color. See the Banff pattern for yardage requirements for other hat sizes.
Homework: Cast on for your hat and complete the ribbing prior to the start of class.
