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 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
Note: Students must already be familira 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.
