Sometimes called Fair Isle, stranded color work includes Fair Isle, Nordic, Bohus and other traditions from around the world.  The techniques for all stranded colorwork styles are the same.  This class will cover yarn carrying techniques (including english, continental and two-handed), a bit of color theory, and some simple design elements.

We’ll provide a basic hat pattern that will work as a template for a sampler of stranded colorwork motifs. We’ll also provide a variety of colorwork motifs for you to mix and match. We’ll talk about how to work charted motifs into the template hat pattern.
