Stranded colourwork, also known as Fair Isle Knitting, isn’t hard; it just takes a little practice! Once you get it, it’s highly enjoyable and the results are very rewarding.
In this two-session class you will make two hats.
In session one, you will learn and practice the technique on the grey and white hat. The project for session two is the navy and white hat. In addition to working on a more complex pattern, you will learn how to deal with long floats when there are 5 or more stitches between colour changes.
