Description: In a relaxed setting, Mary Jane introduces you to the world of stranded colorwork, often called Fair Isle knitting. In this technique class we will learn the basics, covering several methods of holding your yarns, reading charts, how to introduce new colors, what yarn dominance is, how to avoid tangled yarns, weaving in those pesky ends, and finishing techniques. This class is for absolute stranded knitting beginners and those looking to brush up on their technique. We will begin knitting a stranded colorwork headband or hat.

Your usual ditty bag of knitting notions, including stitch markers, tape measure, scissors and tapestry needle. Paper and pencil for notes.
