Fun with Stripes and Slipped Twisted Stitch Colorwork with Anne Kuo Lukito
Explore the possibilities of knitting with singular (or multiple) stripe colorwork both in the round and flat. Learn how to create complicated-looking stitch patterns in a background of stripes without the fuss of doing complicated colorwork including making reversible fabrics with motifs on both sides. Learn how to work 2-color cast-on and bind-offs and understand the techniques. You will even start creating your own unique patterning in class as well as a mini-project to work on.
Note: Students must know how to work in the round.
