Intentional Patterning with Hand-Dyed Yarns with Laura Bryant
Ever knit with hand-dyed yarn and noticed a particular pattern forming? Want to be able to do that reliably? This class is for you! We will cover the different styles of hand-dyeing, with examples of how they pattern. Learn how to read the color repeat in a hand-dyed yarn and then how to harness that repeat into reliable patterning, producing columns of color, flashes and argyles. We’ll examine how to turn those patterns into usable sized pieces for actual garments. Lots of hands-on swatching for 'repeatable' results!
Materials fee: $5
