In this class, we’ll practice knitting 2 color stranded colorwork in the round while learning to combine colors that harmonize and ensure the motifs have enough contrast against the background. You’ll learn techniques for successful stranded colorwork like color dominance, float tension, and avoiding the tangling of strands. After completing this class, you’ll be ready to tackle your first colorwork sweater or accessory and choose colors with confidence.
