Stunning Colorwork the Easy Way: Knit one Below with Harry Wells
Want amazing looking colorwork without the hassle of stranding or working with multiple colors in a row? You can have it with the Knit One Below technique. It requires knitting with only one color per row. Our focus will be on making vertical stripes easily as we follow step-by-step instructions. We'll start with simple swatches and as time permits, continue with hands-on work in the creation of a hemmed cowl or scarf (flat or tubular).
Three balls of worsted weight yarn of same or very similar fiber blend (wool or wool blend is easiest with which to learn) in different colors--one can be variegated, double point needles (7” or 8” is best) or 24” circular needles in size you normally use for worsted weight yarn you've chosen, straight needles in same size, stitch markers, waste yarn that is sport or fingering weight or DMC perle cotton, Knit Chek or ruler.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
One 4" x4" stockinette swatch in yarn from supplies list.
