Two-Handed Colourwork at Edinburgh Yarn Festival

Why not pick up a technique that will transform how you think about stranded knitting? In this class you will learn an efficient and practical way of knitting with two colours at the same time. 

Karie will teach you how to knit colourwork holding the yarns in both hands. You will learn how to keep your yarn floats correctly tensioned, howto control colour dominance, and how to speed up your colourwork knitting. The class includes instructions on how to combine the continental knitting technique with the standard 'throwing' method

and it is suitable for people who knit either

way. Karie will also talk about how to choose colours for

a project and you will get a chance to look at

her gorgeous samples.
