Overview

Alongside beloved knitting instructor Amy Detjen stranded colorwork will work for you! During Amy's class, you'll get comfortable knitting a colorwork hat before you succeed at knitting an approachable stranded colorwork cardigan or pullover pattern. Along the way, you'll receive Amy's expert tips for tangle-free two-handed knitting and keeping your tension even. Find out how to trap your floats so the back of your work stays neat and tidy, and learn to add in new colors and weave in ends as you go. Then, Amy will walk you through knitting your sleeves, and if you so choose, shaping a V-neck, and steeking your V-neck and armholes with confidence. You'll attach your sleeves, finish your edges beautifully and weave in ends, and your dazzling colorwork sweater is done!
