Seriously Sassy Stripes! with Patty Lyons
Stripes can add so much to your project, and there are more tricks to stripes than you might think! We will work a sampler that will teach you all the fun striping tricks, like how to knit in your ends as you go, a better way to join a new ball of yarn, how to make the color change magically just where you want with the felted join, and more. We'll also explore more advanced tricks like the knit and slide, a trick to add stripes to your rib, and the jogless join in the round. We'll end with design inspiration ideas that will get you ready to design your own stripe project!
