This class is all about showing off beautiful yarns with simple techniques combined in clever ways. Techniques like stripes, short rows, and holding yarns together will be explored and combined to create bold architectural fabrics. Stephen will show off a colorful array of Westknits designs while encouraging you to look at yarn in a new way. If you have a colorful Westknits project you would like to begin, there will be time to cast on a new project in the last hour of class. Recommended projects: Penguono, Marled Magic Shawl, Marled Magic Sweater, Dotted Rays, Parachutey, Chevron Shenanigans, Marled Fade Triangle, Vertices Unite, or any other favorite Westknits design that uses several colors striped or marled together. Mohair and textural fibers are encouraged for exploring marled color techniques.
Materials: Please bring an array of colorful scrap yarn (10 colors or more) for swatching. All kinds of yarn weights and fibers will work. Mohair and textural fibers are encourages for exploring marled color techniques. Bring several different needle sizes for exploration.
