We will cover the basics of stranded knitting in this class. Stranded knitting is used in various types of knitted designs, including Fair-Isle, Scandinavian sweaters, Bohus Stickning sweaters, etc. We will knit a simple coffee cozy to learn the skills. 2-handed stranded knitting will be demonstrated if students are interested. Tips and techniques for managing multiple yarns will also be discussed.
Prerequisites: Intermediate. Beginning – Advanced knitters. Must be familiar with knitting in the round with either dpns or magic loop on circulars, reading charts. The chart is just a grid showing the color of the yarn for each st so is not complicated.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding class content.
There is no material fee for this workshop.
Students must bring:
2 colors of fingering weight knitting yarn - partial skeins are acceptable as long as there is at least 50 gms of yarn in each skein. A variegated or gradient yarn for one of them will make the project more interesting.
Dpns or a long circular for magic loop of a size appropriate for the yarn (US2-4) depending on how loose or tight a knitter the student is.
Pen and paper for taking notes, Scissors, Stitch markers and other knitting notions.
Gauge doesn’t really matter but a very tight or a very loose gauge will be problematic. A tight knitter should use a larger sized needle and a loose knitter should use a smaller size.
CO 64 sts using MC. Using the magic loop technique, join into a circle being careful not to twist. (Optional: place a stitch marker to indicate the Beg of Round or BOR)
Work 7 rounds in 2x2 ribbing as follows:
Round 1: *K2, p2*, repeat from * to * to end
Repeat Round 1 6 times for a total of 7 rounds
Bring to class without cutting the yarn
