Intro to Ikat Knitting or Crochet with Laura Bryant
If you have ever wanted to fool around with patterning hand-dyed yarn, Ikat knitting or crochet is the easiest introduction. Spend three fast-paced hours swatching Ikat-dyed yarns using several different approaches to design; along the way you will gain skill at manipulating colors, forcing them to do your will. Lots of design options will be discussed and illustrated.
