In case you haven’t noticed, there are some people who like to knit with both hands! Experience the bliss of working with two colors at once to create deceptively intricate-looking patterns. Skills taught include reading (and writing your own!) charts for stranded knitting; stranded knitting techniques from a variety of cultures, like Fair Isle, Swedish Bohus, and indigenous Russian designs; how to incorporate letters and numbers into your designs; and more. If you've been curious about bringing multiple colors into your knitting projects--and we're not just talking stripes here--this is the class for you. Taught in the round, we'll be starting a Fair Isle-type project on circular needles (hat or headband or cowl; you decide). We will go over two-color techniques (one yarn in each hand!), getting good even tension in your floats, steam blocking for a more professional looking finished project, chart reading and writing, and more!

Prerequisite skills: Students should be very comfortable with the knit stitch, but no purling necessary. Students with experience knitting in the round especially welcome.
