Vertical Stripes and More!: 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, but some textured and checker K1B stitches will also be covered. 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).

Note: Participants must be able to cast on (long tail cast-on preferable) and work knit, purl, K2 tog, and SSK without assistance.
