Getting Started: Stranded Color with Beth Whiteside
Learn to work holding 2 colors at the same time! Commonly called Fair
Isle knitting, this technique for stranding the unworked color across
the back lets you create multi-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 keep those 2 yarns
from twisting, and try different ways to hold them. Come get a taste of
this classic knitting technique!
Note: Students must already be familiar with knitting in the round.
2 balls (50 yds each) #5 (chunky-weight) yarn in 2 complementary colors and a US 10½ circular needle 16" long, measured from tip to tip.
