Stranded Color with Beth Whiteside
Learn to work holding 2 colors at the same time! Commonly called Fair Isle knitting, this technique for stranding colors across the back lets you create brightly colored and patterned fabrics. While working on a small bag/hat project you'll practice getting an even tension (not too tight, not too loose), learn ways to prevent yarns from twisting, and try different holding techniques. Come get a taste of this classic knitting technique!
Materials: 2 balls (50 yds each) #5 (chunky-weight) yarn in 2 complementary colors and a US 10½ circular needle 16".
