Stitch Strategies for Hand-Dyed Yarns with Laura Bryant
If you have ever fallen in love with a hand-dyed yarn, only to be disappointed in the knitted fabric, this class is for you. We'll explore stitch strategies to avoid the often undesired pooling, patterning, and striping of hand dyed yarns. Learn to read a skein of hand-dyed yarn, the different types of dyeing, and then explore the stitches that will help you coax the inherent beauty from even the most difficult color combinations. Some hands-on swatching during class.
