Knitting 205 – Stranded Color Knitting

fibercrafts

1 day class

In this class you will learn how to do stranded color knitting using circular and double pointed needles – the form of color work used for Fair Isle and Scandinavian color patterns. Fair Isle knitting is characterized by bands of geometric patterns, using two or more colors but never more than two colors in one round or circular row. Scandinavian knitting patterns use the same form but typically use one contrasting color.  In class we will knit a Scandinavian patterned woolen hat. Yarn and pattern will be provided and are included in materials fee. We will use 16” circular needle size 6 or to gauge.

We will also use double pointed needles size 6 or to gauge. Students may bring their own needles or purchase at time of class. Before taking this class, you should have mastered the basics of knitting and be able to knit in the round on double pointed needles

This class is from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
