Knitting in Color

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taught by Jill Draper. Three 2-hour classes, $120

E-mail us to be notified when this class is scheduled again. Or, gather a group of friends and we can schedule one for you! Private lessons can also be arranged.

Learn to use 2 (or more!) colors at once & create your own intarsia pattern.  In this class you will learn how to make colorwork charts as well as use the intarsia technique for adding colorful motifs you design into your knitting.  You can use any yarn you’d like but solids or heathers will show your design the best & the finer the yarn you use the more intricate your design can be. The piece we make in class can easily be turned into a pillow but once you have the technique down you can add intarsia motifs to anything! To get the most out of this class you should be proficient at knitting & purling with fairly even tension. Designing intarsia using Excel software will also be discussed but the software is not necessary for class.

Students will need:
yarn of the same weight in lots of colors (don’t be afraid to bring multicolors!)
needles to match that yarn
colored pencils & an eraser
