Intro to Stranded Colorwork Workshop in Hayward March 2

Stranded colorwork is a method of knitting with at least two colors in the same row or round, carrying the unused color along the back of the work. In class we will discuss tension, catching long floats, and color dominance while knitting a wrist cuff in the round, with one color held in each hand.

This workshop will take place at Aranea Craft Studio, 943 C Street in Hayward, CA.
