Stranding Techniques for Color Knitting with Beth Brown-Reinsel
Become proficient in your two-color technique working on the right side and the wrong side of the work in this class. Learn the Norwegian Purl and how it will enable you to purl on the wrong side in two colors with ease! Working with two yarns in the right hand, one yarn in each hand, and two yarns in the left hand are covered in this class as well as how to purl on the wrong side in each of those styles. Corrugated Ribbing will also be included. Weaving (or catching/trapping) the yarns will be demonstrated for each knitting style. A tiny pillow sampler will be made in class to learn all the techniques. Charts and directions will be given for creating the tiny pillow sampler after the class to practice the techniques.
Please be aware this is a challenging class.
Note: Please be aware this is a challenging, fast-paced class.The ability to knit in two colors in any one style is helpful but not mandatory.
