Colorwork is a technique that nearly every knitter strives to learn, but it can be intimidating. What better way to learn to knit colorwork than by taking a wonderful hat class?

Also known as stranded knitting, colorwork allows you to knit with more than one color in each row. You can use this technique to create colorful motifs throughout your knitted pieces.

In this class, we will learn how to work stranded colorwork, how to read the charts that dictate how and when to use your colors, managing tension, M1, double decrease, and how to do shaping while maintaining the color pattern.
