One of the fundamentals of knitting, color stranded knitting is a technique that is used in fair isle, Norwegian, and many folk styles around the world. While it may seem intimidating, the basic method is easy to master with a little guidance and practice. Once you’ve learned, you will be ready to play with bold graphics and wild color combinations, or investigate the complex shading of traditional patterns. You may even find yourself picking up some knitter’s graph paper and creating your own designs. Get started with one of our great upcoming color stranded knitting classes!
