Stranded Colorwork is fun and on-trend. Once you learn the technique, a whole new world of knitting opens up! In this class, you will learn how to make a “speed swatch," how to knit with one color in each hand, how to read a colorwork chart, and how to knit Fair Isle in the round by making a colorful "Bousta Beanie."
This class is for advanced beginners. Students should know how to knit.
