Learn how to knit two-stranded colorwork! Visiting instructor Christina Danaee will teach this colorwork workshop using her Foliole Pattern, a simple cowl that uses two colors of DK weight yarn. You’ll learn how to read a colorwork chart for working in the round and try some different methods of holding two strands of yarn at once for colorwork knitting. This class includes a printed version of the Foliole Pattern and a code to download a digital version.
US 4 - 3.5mm circular needle 16” (or longer for magic loop)
US 6 - 4.0mm circular needle 16” (or longer for magic loop)
DK weight yarn - 200 yds for MC and 150 yds for CC (we recommend using a smooth yarn, like merino, rather than anything fuzzy or with a halo, and choose high-contrast colors so it’s easy to see you’re work)
What You Should Already Know:
You should know how to knit and purl, have experience with ribbing, and even some experience knitting in the round. We will go over how to knit with two colors and how to read a colorwork chart so experience with those skills is not necessary but welcome!
