INTRODUCTION STRANDED TEXTURAL COLORWORK with LARS RAINS
Item Number: Class 22
Stranded textural colorwork combines basic stitch patterns, such as seed stitch, moss stitch, and box stitch, with the vibrant possibilities offered by stranded colorwork. It can be used to produce shimmering Bohus effects as well as curated gradients in a variety of project types. In this introductory class, we will explore how one stitch pattern can change the look of stranded colorwork in a dramatic hat project. We will also discuss how different stitch patterns can be combined with alternative approaches to color in order to demonstrate the potential that this knitting method has to offer.
